Sea of Clouds

I took this shot on the way to the tea fields of Munnar, India. On the side of the road that climbed over the mountain to get there, there was this amazing view of the valley below. I included the hill to the right as a reference for the scale of the shot.
The contrasting colors of the hills and the clouds makes this almost look like the ocean and waves rolling in. Overall the low light from the setting sun and the muted colors makes this a very calming image.

The clouds look like they are rolling right out of the hill side!

Reminds me of when my kids went to school on a hill. Every day in the clouds would be tucked in with just the tip top sticking out. very neat looking
