Made my way back to the backwaters after a really long time. And this was the sight that welcomed me.
With the influx of the heat wave that had been steadily building then fluctuating since the past few days, the water levels at the holding ponds have come done considerably. Area that usually used to submerged have surfaced. It’s not clear (to me) whether if it’s due to the tidal effect or the heat. But the place indeed looks much deserted, like it was most of this year.
P.S – Had this building not been there (in the frame and in life), this picture would have been even more pleasing to my eyes.
A morning walk toward the second holding pond, hoping to see some of the ‘big guys’. I haven’t seen the big ones this season at the place yet but have come across many small ones who were equally a great sight to watch.
But a morning stroll through the area just kickstarts your day!
A fishing boat, tied close to the shore during the low tide, as seen at Sagar Vihar during sunset.
The perfect sight to start a day!

The sunset into the Arabian Sea. As seen from the dry grasslands of Parsik Hills.
