A panoramic view of the large empty plot (in the far background) being developed for the impending “Navi Mumbai International Airport” amidst the ever beautiful hill ranges, mangroves and various streams, as viewed while descending from the Kharghar Hills one fine afternoon.
It would be fun to watch how many airplanes would fly out of this location in the coming years and how ‘wise of a decision’ it was to make an airport in this particular location in the first place.
A massive cloud formation engulfs the Haji Malang range looking similar to a dramatic pyroclastic cloud that forms after a volcanic eruption.
This image was made during a rain free evening, just before sunset, as viewed from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai.
A thunderstorm, approaching from the east, engulfing the skyline of Kharghar.
Being the 1st day of the month of the monsoon, the weather didn’t disappoint me at all. The intensity of the storm was quite superior given the fact that none of Haji Malang was to be seen anywhere. But what blew things out of proportion was the surreal lighting all around. It was neither diffused and nor strong. It was just out of this world!
P.S – In case anyone wondered, I didn’t go overboard to make the color look like these. Though basic tweaks were done to the image, the WB stands untouched (Temp. 4250 K , Tint +9). Nor was any funky filter applied (I suck big time in doing those anyways).
The light today was indeed this damn crazy.
Dramatic cloudscapes above the hills at Kharghar. An indicator to the upcoming monsoon.
Though it has been a while, being back is what really matters
