Imagine you’re on a date with your partner. What do you see? If not for the most of you, atleast for me there’s a key element. It’s an open sky, and to be more specific, a sunset. To be more elaborate, a table for two at a beach house patio, with a clear view of the sunset. That’s where I’d want to take my girlfriend/wife on a date.
There’s something about sunsets that entices me. I mean, when are sunsets a bad setting? Date with your partner, or a chat with a friend, or fun evening with friends at the beach, or a lake boating trip. And to add to love for sunsets, my current city, Mumbai and my hometown, Bhopal both have amazing sunset vantage points. Be it Juhu Beach or the Upper Lake, be it Carter Road or VIP Road, be it Marine Drive or Kaliyasot Dam. I love sitting at these places and enjoying my sunsets.
Now as I promised, this post is also a chance for me to show off my photography to you, and also, these picture’s will give you a clear idea of what I’m been blabbering about.
Beautiful, isn’t it? Oh, and that island you see in the background? That’s the Takiya Tapu, the name people usually don’t know it by, it’s just known as the mazaar (mausoleum) of the Upper Lake. A Sufi saint by the name of Shah Ali Shah used to live in solitude on that island in the 18th century, and people never dared to go there. After his death, his grave was dug at the island. It was only recently that the mausoleum was built.
Oh right, I was talking about sunsets. I’ll write more if I do write a Tour Guide on Bhopal. 😀 Another sunset in Bhopal is at Kaliyasot Dam, knows among youngsters as KD.
Now I don’t have a sunset picture of that place ( note to myself : click one ) but I do have a sunrise picture here. : ( http://instagram.com/p/baAlfAtl2Z/ )
Now coming to Mumbai, my personal favourite is the sunset at Carter Road. This is probably the most famous place for coffee and food in the evening in West Mumbai.
And the most famous Juhu Beach, sadly I don’t have a picture there too. I shall add it and repost this as soon as I have one, but nothing for now. Till then Google is your friend. 😛
I think I’ll sign off here. Just go and salvage what’s left of my Sunday.
Until next time, goodbye!
