Masinagudi through Ooty, a GoPro Time-lapse

On the drive back from Masinagudi, snapped a time-lapse with the GoPro mounted on the windshield.  We took a detour through Ooty, not far in distance, but with the quality of the road and the switchbacks going up the mountain, it took many extra hours.  I ran out of battery power as we reached Yuvaraj's friends place in Nilgiris...  It is over 7 minutes long, but it gives you an idea of the traffic and road!

Cab view of Off-Roading in Masinagudi

Via the GoPro mounted in the windshield, here is the cab view of the photos from the post Off Roading in Masinagudi, in testing out the GoPro, I've noticed that the video is definitely suffering from rolling shutter, more than I would have expected, but then it wasn't that smooth of a run either!

Off-Roading in Masinagudi

Last weekend we took a trip down to Bandipur and Masinagudi to test out Raghu's new Jeep.  It handled pretty well in the mud, much better than the Gypsy Jeeps that the Safari was using (the non-bald tires and the higher suspension helped, our Gypsy broke a leaf spring on the ride back).

 Did a few Poses, the Jeep looks much better with a fresh coat of mud!

 Only Raghu could make this Jeep look small!

Day Trip to West Karnakata

On Sunday I drove out west of Bangalore to Belur and Halebeedu, stopping on the way at Shravanabalegola to see the Jain temple.  The temple is built on top of a large boulder, with rough stairs carved into it, according to my pedometer, the climb was equal to about 45 flights of stairs.  As it was a Sunday, the temple was crowded and there was a ceremony going on, here are a few shots at the temple.
