The lakeside by our home is one place that we often choose to camp for an evening irrespective of the it the fall foliage or the snow kissed trees or the lushy green, this is a place well worth for an escape from all our routines, works and worries .

I’m participating in the Wild Weekly Photo Challenge This week’s Challenge is: Escape  and this post goes to it. (Hope I am not late).


Watching sunset at the beach is one of the things missed most in this North-eastern side of America. If the idea is to compensate it with sunrise, a sleepy-head like me will have to raise my will power to quite a huge level to do that. The thought of going to the lakeside to capture sunrise during fall and winter(when the “dude” plans to come up after 7 a.m) sends a chill to my not-so-cold-friendly body. If the plan is to see it in summer, forget it, waking up at 5 and walking to the lakeside is out of question.( Also, I like to watch the sun set rather than it rise :). May be ‘coz a setting sun brings up the beautiful night which gives me hours and hours of serene sleep). Ahhh….Thats when all the nostalgia swarms up..!!!

The long beaches in my very own hometown…the countless sunsets watched….the brined gooseberries and mangoes munched…the scribbling on the sand….the orangish-reddish-yellow  sky….the long wait for a bus to return home…Its all memories now…fond memories..!!!

This snap was taken on our last visit to India at the  Beypore beach where there is a  1 km long bridge made of stone stretching in to sea called “Pulimuttu”.The place was so very awesome. ThePulimuttu is surrounded by  Arabian sea on one side and Kallai river on the other side. The clouds betrayed me from grabbing a good snap of the setting sun…but my eyes assimilated all that my heart longed for..!!!
