Have not posted for the last couple of days because I finally lost my job, made redundant! The company where I was working is closing down the department in which I worked - maintaining 'growth' and preserving 'profits' for the larger good - they explained !!
So I went to Mandarmoni. Its a relatively secluded beach, facing the Bay of Bengal, which is about 6 Km long and about 150 meter wide when the tide is low. Its barren and not very many people go there. This evening, I was the lone person on this side of the beach. I needed the solitude to clear my thoughts.
There is a lot of Construction work happening about a couple of kilometers behind me. Hotels and Huest Houses are being built. The destruction on that part of the beach is quite apparent. I am not sure if that is sustainable development. As of now, it is a 'hot' destination because you get to drive right along and over the waves for almost 6 Km, undisturbed.

I am very sorry to hear about your redundancy, never a very happy time whatever the reasons might be. This is an amazing sunset in which to contemplate your future. Beautifully presented and with lovely light and colours. I hope you are able to resolve your problems very soon.

Very beautiful natural images. The golden color of the clouds high above the horizon, the waves of golden color. exudes tranquility and beauty. You have managed to avoid direct light to "burn-in" the scene. Nice balance of light and shadow.
Have a nice day.

You bring us sad news along with this fine picture. Losing the job is a tough experience and I can only wish you very success in your search for a new employment. Watching a sunset like this is no solution to your present problems but it may soothe your mind, and ours. It's an impressive and beautiful sight and you have captured it with perfect colours and sharpness. Excellent work.

Namaskar dear Arunava
What a magnificent stretch of coastline, photographed at the most beautiful time of day. I like the Rule Thirds framing and the beautiful silvery tones on the sand. Spectacular fire in the sky mixed with mily blue tones and whites. A wonderful photo, superbly taken.

un tramonto spettacolare, le striature di rosso sono fantastiche e contrastano benissimo con le nuvole.
Bellissimo scatto, un'atmosfera unica.

Bonjour, cher Arunava,
Quelle image proposée à travers ce merveilleux spectacle offert par la nature.
Les nuages sont-ils le reflet de nos cauchemars ou des rêves les plus fous.
