The sun shines on India II: Your pics
We invited readers to send in their favourite travel pic -- that one photograph that perfectly captures the beauty of a place they visited. And we have been inundated with stunning pics from every corner of India.
Here are some more photos that readers sent in from all across India. Take a look!
First up is Pritika Gupta's picture taken on way to Nandi Hills, Bangalore. "Sunset is the most interesting time for photography as you can use sun light to provide different shades to your picture," says Pritika.
Next is Moneesha Sharma's picture shot on her visit to Pemayangtse in Sikkim.
Saya Moneesha, "Pemayangste is a beautiful place with a glorious view of the Kanchanjunga, which is what people go there to see. The sunset is in a different direction. This view is taken from our hotel. I loved the colours of the sky which threw everything else into shadow. As the sun set, the birdsong too became hushed gradually."
On the way to Mussoorie
"This pic was taken on the drive between Dhanaulti and Mussoorie on the 3rd of March 2010," says Anup Bhide.
"I drove from Mussoorie to Dhanaulti in Uttarakhand, to visit the Surkhanda Devi Mandir that is at a height of 8000 feet. It also has some spectacular views of the Himalayas and was well worth the one hour trek up to the temple. On the drive back to Mussoorie I was lucky enough to chance upon this sunset. It amlost looked like a giant spaceship was descending into the valley!"
Like a ray of hope
Arunendra Mishra sent us this picture taken at IIT Madras.
"In January 2006 while returning to the hostel from the Lab I saw the sunrays, like rays of hope, through the Banyan tree and decided to capture it in camera. I took this picture the next morning." says Arunendra

Sunset at Sam, Jaisalmer
Panchmarhi, Madhya Pradesh
Here is what Rahul Raizada says about Pachmarhi. "It is Madhya Pradesh's most verdant jewel, a place where nature has found exquisite ex-pression in myriad enchanting ways.
Green shades embrace the mountains, and everywhere is heard the gentle murmur of flowing water. Bridle paths lead into tranquil forest glades, groves of wild bamboo and jamun, dense sal forests and delicate bamboo thickets."
