Mist around Lipton’s Seat
Lipton’s Seat is one of the highest points in Sri Lanka. You can supposedly see 60% of the island, down to the sea. This is where the planter Lipton (of Lipton’s Tea) used to sit and it makes the area an ideal mythical home for Ravana. When we went, however, it was shrouded in mist. The thing about being that high is that you often end up literally in the middle of a cloud. There is an observation deck at the top of the hill. I was tired and lay down on the wood boards and took whatever photos emerged from there. Mind you that there are zero stunning vistas or anything, these are just images of people, silhouettes really, against the ever burgeoning mist.

PS. I also found some great archival images of Lipton’s Tea ads and stuff, quite interesting. They’ve imagined noble tea pluckers pouring tea directly into a white woman’s cup.
