Road near Munnar, Kerala, South India

The above photo, taken near Munnar in Kerala, South India, shows a hairpin curve beneath the photographer, with a motorcyclist providing scale. The wall at the bottom of the photo is the barrier that keeps the photographer (and car) from falling over the edge. More of this road can been against the mountain in the middle left of the picture. This photo has not been cropped, since each part contributed to the whole picture.
