Spring in Kerala


The only spring we know in Kerala is the mechanical spring. We do not have a season ‘spring’.

Although Kerala lies closer to the equator than most Indian states, it is blessed with pleasant and equable climate throughout the year. This is because of the land’s nearness to the sea and the presence of the natural fort like Western Ghats on the east that protect the state from dry and hot winds blowing from the north. Kerala receives copious rain (average 3000 mm) each year. The temperature normally ranges from 28’C to 32’ C (82’F to 90’ F) on the plains but drops to about 20’C (68’ F) in the highlands. The Highlands of Kerala, enjoys a cool and invigorating climate the year-round. Owing to its diversity in geographical features, the climatic condition in Kerala is diverse. It can be divided into 4 seasons – Winter, Summer, South-West Monsoon and North-East Monsoon.

  2. Great take on this theme – I have used a different meaning of the word Spring in one of my contributions too – http://tanzalongs.wordpress.com/2014/05/03/weekly-photo-challenge-spring-4/

  3. A photographer must shoot what’s available. In Viña del Mar, Chile we don’t have seasons like much of the world. Being temperate all year we have fog season, followed by rainy season, followed by another fog season, finally followed by a sunny season.

    • In fact, it was all about just expressing what came to my mind first about Spring.
