Cherai is a beautiful beach near Kochi, relatively clean, and not too crowded. We spent a few days there during our summer vacation, and, instead of the simmering heat and calm sea, we found heavy rain and huge waves that lashed at the shore! While this did restrict our time in the water, the sky put up a beautiful show for us every day...a different one each day. Here is one of the most spectacular sunsets we saw. Honestly, I didn't know where to look.... At the clouds as they gathered, or at the sun which changed its look every minute, or at the sea, with its frothy reflections of the sun and the clouds, or at the changing colours in the sky.. Let me leave the descriptions aside, and allow you to see for yourself, one of the most spectacular sunsets I have ever seen!
|It all began with the clouds gathering...|
|...distorting the sun, which still managed to shine!|
|Then, the colours began to change, as the sun seemed to move faster, towards the horizon|
|For a moment, the sun appeared in all its glory, a perfect circle, as a cloud streaked through....|
|It was a spectacular sight indeed!|
|As the sun continued its downward journey, the light seemed to change all the times, as the clouds changed in the sky... even the sand seemed to reflect the fading light, from the thin layer of water left behind by the receding waves!|
|The last glimpses of the sun, as it seemed to merge with the water, was too beautiful a sight to describe|
|Can you see the sun here, almost at the verge of disappearance?|
|Even as the sun disappeared from sight, the colours just seemed to be more beautiful, and I couldn't help clicking... the patterns of the clouds changed too, appearing more interesting than ever!|
|Even as the sky darkened, the clouds continued the show, with their ever-changing patterns and colours keeping us hooked!|
