A set of three successive shots taken at Fort Kochi, on a short get-away from college sometime ago. We'd spent a long morning walking around the Jew Town, Mattancherry, etc., and were relaxing by the water watching the fishermen at work with the Chinese fishing nets. That's when I spotted these boats, both big and small, approach each other, and sail away. The second picture is one of my favorites from that trip.
Agumbe is a tiny village in Shimoga district, and part of the eco-sensitive zone of the Western Ghats, the lifeline of the coast. The region receives very heavy rainfall, and is also referred to as the Cherrapunji of the South. The region has lush beautiful rain forests, and is also home to a number of unique flora and fauna, indigenous to the zone. The enigmatic King Cobra also resides in the in the thick rainforests.
