Kochi Visit 260807

The quality of the light during the monsoons is really magical..and more so when it is raining at dusk.

I enjoyed the evening so much, doing nothing but sitting at the edge of the backwaters, watching the ships.steamers,tankers and fishing boats go past,and enjoying the light...

On the right-hand-side of the photo, you can see the famous Chinese fishing nets of Kochi...they are still used, not just a touristy attraction! They always make a beautiful Japanese-style picture...


The lights twinkled on in the passing ships, and reflected in the choppy water...

Making a living in the rain is hard.

And of course, when I went back into the hotel (took the lift this time!) I couldn't resist that age-old photographer-trap, the self-photo!
