This is my submission for the penultimate day of the 7 Day Nature Challenge. Sometimes you have to get down on your knees to get what you want.
Location: Thrissur, Kerala
Ain’t nothing like overripe clouds hanging above your head 🙂 I could really use some of this cloud cover right now.
Location: Marina Beach, Chennai
Waiting for the Sun to rise can be sooooo worth it sometimes!

The sea, of course, is a constant presence in my photos.
Even here, when the focus undividedly goes to the flower, the sea is still there in the background, adding another layer of intrigue.
I was also quite surprised by the kind of bokeh my phone achieved.

I can only guess how this little guy ended up on the beach all by himself. But, a perfect photo-op!
Location: Yarada Beach, Visakhapatnam
Time: You can probably approximate from the shadow and location. 😉
Nature photographs, I have ’em a plenty 🙂 But how good are they, I leave it up to ya’ll. Since I noticed a handful of bloggers I follow doing this right now, I thought of joining in the fun too.
So anyway, let’s talk about the below photograph.
This was taken at one of the beaches in Visakhapatnam, at about six in the morning. You guessed it, I wanted to catch the sunrise! It took me a while to get a satisfactory shot. The lighting proved to be a problem, but in the end I think it turned out just fine.
I really believe my photographs reflect my state of mind, which for the most part does not go through a lot of extremes. So it’s not a surprise that the kind of photos that I savor capturing the most are of tranquility.
Take this photo of the Yarada beach from my recent trip to Vizag. It was quite far from the actual city, so by the time I reached there, it was just me and a couple of other people in the entire beach!! A couple of scattered fishing boats, crabs flitting about the shore, and a distant view of the hills with the setting sun. Just the tonic the mind needs.

This Guava-and-Cranberry concoction with a fair bit of mint leaves thrown in really helped me cool off on a hot January afternoon! Punchy flavors with a right balance of sweet and sour, and combined with a luscious Carbonara on the side – simply great!

Even with all the grimness around,
even when nothing seems to go right,
there’s one thing that never fails to
rise up to the occasion to remind us
there’s still hope and beauty left after all.
