Sky Watch Friday - Skies over Mumbai


The Mumbai Skyline, over-set by monsoon clouds......



Walking along Marine Drive in the pouring rain brings back memories of my college days when I walked the path alone. So many years later, I walked the same path, this time with my husband and son! A memorable experience indeed!!!

  1. Mumbai is never prepared for the rains! not even a couple of months after the rains begin! but rains are nevertheless one of the things I really love about Mumbai!

  5. Yes, Mridula, it is still raining, and I hope it continues for the next month or two!! if it rains through september, then usually the lakes are full enough to supply us with water through the year, if the authorities dont mess up, of course!!!

  8. That's a nice shot and so different from anything here. Where I live we get a "monsoon" too, as in seasonal moisture. But here the monsoon means that the clear morning skies will usually turn to a thunderstorm in the late afternoon.

  11. Thanks! for us, monsoon usually means 4 months of rain, rain and nothing but rain. we wake up to cloudy skies, and sleep with cloudy skies... and the rain varies from drizzling to pouring!! of course, things are changing, the climate change is showing up now and then, but it still rains quite a bit, so we get to enjoy it for now!
