Into the Fog

A group of tourists head through the fog towards the island on Bhimtal Lake
October is generally sunny and pleasant in the Uttarakhand Hills. However, this year the rains have tapered into October and the fog is still rolling into the hills.
This picture is taken in Bhimtal, a picturesque lake nestled among dense jungles of Kumaon. Bhimtal is starting to become a popular destination away from the crowds of Nainital which has traditionally been more popular among the tourists.

Old fisherman resting besides his boat

Taken on Puri beach adjacent to a fishing village

I was visiting Puri and took an early morning stroll on the beach. Towards the end of the beach there is a fishing village and fishing boats were returning after a night out at the sea.

Amidst the chaos and commotion associated with the returning of boats after a night of fishing, this old man was relaxing besides his boat – at peace with himself and the world around him

Fishing boats returning home

Taken on Puri beach adjacent to a fishing village

I was visiting Puri and took an early morning stroll on the beach. Towards the end of the beach there is a fishing village and fishing boats were returning after a night out at the sea.

The boats seem to be hanging out in the sea waiting for their turn to come in for landing and unload their fish.

The incoming waves with the boats lined up behind made for an interesting shot.

Fishermen in Making

Taken on Puri beach adjacent to a fishing village

I was visiting Puri and took an early morning stroll on the beach. Towards the end of the beach there is a fishing village and fishing boats were returning after a night out at the sea.

While watching the boats come in and unload their catch for the day, I saw these two kids practicing how to launch the boat against the waves. Each time they would push the boat out, the waves would push it back.

This is a picture of one such attempt with the sun, still below the horizon, painting the sky in morning hues.
