Watching the Sun Go Down
I feel fortunate to reside close to the beach at Seven bungalows, here in Bombay, and as a kid I would run around on an empty beach, but now times have changed here. With the rising population and the new buildings coming up in and around the area the beach is no longer clean or empty.
But that doesn’t stop me from admiring the sunsets from the rocks on the beach front. It has been spectacular offlate, and the cloud formations getting highlighted with the setting sun has always fascinated me.
The beach never used to have horses, but in the recent years people who charge a small amount for a ride on the horse have mushroomed.
Back to mother nature the setting sun, glowing orange with its light glimmering on the surface of the sea. The lulling of the waves as they reach the shore, while you sit on the rocks put there so that the walls of the buildings don’t fall into the sea during the monsoons.
A flock of birds fly by, team spirit unlike us humans, birds keep rotating their places, the bird right up front has to spend the maximum energy flying through the sky making a path for the rest of the lot. While the one at the back has to spend the least energy, they keep rotating places until they reach their destination. Humans are becoming more like crabs just pulling each other down especially in corporations.
Magnificent clouds just the way I like em, twisting and turning the great gig in the sky.
Versova is a fishing village so sighting fishing boats is not difficult, I wish had a little boat of my own that I could take out to sea, be away for a while watch time go by. It would please me watch the sun set, knowing that I have escaped the dark smog cloud that hovers above the city.
Here you see the crowd on the beach that I have been avoiding all along. If you look at the left hand side corner of the picture below, you would see a man bending over a carry cart. Hes a Bhelpuri guy, I don’t really eat that too often its been a while actually my mouths watering now.
As soon as the sun begins to set its time for the colors to really kick in, most people on the beach are oblivious to all the changes taking place in the sky which I like more than television.
There are quite a few boys who play football on the beach. Playing football on the beach is not like playing football on any other surface.
The sand makes it difficult to run, especially if its dry, it completely consumes your energy. The speed of the ball on the sand is slower, so you have to kick harder too.
I’m now trying to mess around with the shutter speed and aperture size of the camera to get some more colors.
I do hope you had a nice day at the beach with me, do make the time to visit the beach as well nothing can be more relaxing when you make your self alive to the reality that mother has provided as compared to our little man made realities.
