A dense, glorious deciduous forest ecoregion occupies a considerable portion of southern India. This region has long been known for its untouched natural beauty although that fact seems to be fading of late. Cyntheri (pronounced syn-'thæ-ri and often called "Cyntheri rocks") is one such region famous for its monsoon torrents, caved-in areas, large array of rock types and numerous indigenous, often unique, flora.
This brief video is meant to deliver a sense of what it feels to move through this particular region of forests, often accessible by four-wheelers, often only on foot. It is nature at its closest: friendly yet fearful, colorful yet predominantly green, inviting yet restricting.
This work was conceived, filmed and edited by V.H. Belvadi on a Nikon D600 with music composed by Derek Audette.
