Gorgeous! I count 10 ridges in those rolling hills, up to the mountainous range. Is that right?

Layers and layers of mountains... So beautiful.

Knatolee,
Yep, I love the bright greenery in bluish background of the mountains faraway

Silent Moments,
Yep, At Beragala (Just below Haputhale Gap) you can see very far. That is why I get this good scenery.

Clo,
Hope to see you again very soon. Take care and my best wishes to your family too.

Yes, it is pathana type grass land and I like this picture a lot :)
