It’s that time of the year again when the above lines from pacchai nirame are the ones that I get reminded of every time I step out on the roads. The spring season is slowly beginning in Chennai. I saw the first of the copper pods bloom on some trees in L.B.road some three weeks back and a couple of weekends back saw the first of the yellow carpet of copper pods on Boat Club Road. It’s just a matter of a week or so before my city gets decorated by the yellow of the copper pods.
Feb-May are also the months when around 6 pm is the time when you get to see one of the most beautiful sunsets at Adyar Bridge. The sky in different hues of pink, orange and blue with or without clouds, the sun again in varying shades of dark golden-orange and yellow, the rays of the sun stretching out to the horizon from the sun on some days, the reflection of the sun & the colours of the sky on the waters of Adyar River, the clouds hiding the sun on some days, it’s a beautiful visual treat presented by nature waiting for our eyes to relish! All I can do while travelling by bus is to take some weird-angle photos like these with my mobile, which will no way do justice to the sunset: 😛
(I took these photos during Feb-May last year)
P.S.: When I told my sister that I was going to write this post, she wanted to know if this wasn’t becoming an annual post. 😛 Seems like it was my answer to her
