It is hard to see a good sunset in the city these days, esp. when you look to the west and see buildings reaching for the sky.
I always try to catch a sunset when I visit any coast, a rare sight, for me atleast.
This one is shot somewhere along the coast in south-west India. The light reflecting of the sea just completely illuminates the world around you in a yellow-orange hue. Simply astounding!
Onam is a festival mainly celebrated in Kerala every year. It is a harvest festival, although there is a mythological story to it too. You can read it here.
Seen here is a typical flower decoration/arrangement called pookallam.
Onam is on 23rd August this year.
This little fella came out when the rains had just reduced to a drizzle. I assume its really hard work for a small creature to climb up a 5 foot wall.
The Moonsoons in India are quite a sight. The seas/beaches are quite rough, but are a great sight.
Quick Tip: Stay put … out of the water
Checklist to travel at high speeds
1. A vehicle that can go fast!
2. A person who can drive.
3. A long road.. preferably without turns or sharp curves.
4. Life insurance.. in case of pessimistic outcomes. 😛
This just reminded me a lot of the movie Shutter Island. Gives a really creepy feeling.. especially with the rain and the stormy sea.
The reality of it is that this place is really just a romance spot 🙂
The light house is mostly not functional and is used by “tourists” to be “alone” 😛
- Charcoal burns away.. Smokin!
Shot at Coorg. I’m not sure if this was used for something or just as incense.
- Man Against Nature
Can Man ever be one with nature? Or is nature always in our way of progress?
It’s all in the eyes. That’s all it takes to instill fear. This cat (yea.. tiger) does that well, even when it is dead and stuffed.
And yes it is a little dark.
