In this post, I will be providing images of Sri Lanka, focusing on Colombo, Kandy, Upcountry and some other places in Sri Lanka. I’ll give some text describing each photo or a group of photos. These photos were taken recently in May 2017 when I was in Sri Lanka. I’m trying to capture the diversity and beauty of Sri Lanka giving pictures in both built-up and natural areas that showcase buildings, trees, scenery, bridges, vehicles, houses, rivers, lakes, falls, seas, railways, mountains and rocks. The pictures will be given in the order that they were taken. Let’s begin with images of Colombo.
