Title: Sri Pada from Alton - a glorious sight!!
Post by: Ian Gardner on November 26, 2016, 11:40:40 PM
One evening I was leaving Alton, and on the road after the factory and before the estate entrance, when I looked up and saw a beautiful sight: there in front of me stood the peak silhouetted against the dark sky with a red glow; and like an inverted  jewelled necklace the lights to the summit with those of the temple area at the top forming jewelled pendant. I rushed back home, grabbed my camera and took a colour photograph before the magic was lost. It worked, but was a little blurred and I had the slide for decades until someone handled it with jammy fingers necessitating its eventual destruction.
