Flower of the Sea !

The Flower. A red one with halloweeen bows and ties and a capered neck awaits the arrival of the fishing season. This was shot on July 16 when the fishing ban was in vogue. It gets lifted on 1st August. I hope it sails steady seas and brings a bountyful harvest.

 

This is a re shoot of a quaint mooring harbour for the fishing trawlers.

The orignal shots seem to be lost as of now in the hard drive meltdown.

 

I re visited the place one evening but got side tracked by the majestic sight of an elephant moving timber in the saw mills area of Fort Kochi. The available media got maxed out so I had to drive back home, upload the data to the computer, have tea and come back to do the real shoot.

 

It was providential, this delay. By now the sky had opened up and there was this lovely light which on rare days permeates the air of Kerala.

 

Across the waters in the background are the white storage drums on Willingdon Island
