Anjanadri Hill, India

This shot was taken at Anjanadri Hill at Anegundi region, which is across the Tungabhadra River from the world heritage site, Hampi. The Monkey God Hanuman (of the Ramayan) was born at the top of Anjanadri Hill, it is believed.

Though Hampi gets a steady stream of visitors from all over the world, few cross over to Anegundi, which is equally spectacular in terms ancient ruins and hill-top shrines situated amidst bouldered landscapes. Come sunset, everyone heads to the hilltop to take in the 360-degree view.

Shooting details: Camera – Nikon D5100
Lens – Tamron 18-200 mm
Shutterspeed – 1/640
Focal Length – 95mm
f stop – 6.3
