Our World Tuesday/ A Foggy Day

The Brahmaputra on a foggy morning

On Christmas Eve we braved the cold and the fog and went on a picnic. It was on one of the zillion  sandy stretches left by the river Brahmaputra as it recedes in winter.

Grey was the colour of the day. The skies, the sand, and the river wore a uniform grey that seemed to stretch to infinity.

But on the sand that the river leaves temporarily, at least till the rains turn it into turbulence, tiny plants and even tinier blooms struggle and survive.

Butterfly wings, feathers, and hundreds of webbed footprints cast their own patterns on the sand. In the distance we could hear the birds (there were plenty of ducks in the water) but my camera only captured shadowy images.

The sun did try to break through the clouds as we were returning. But this was the best it could do, forming a shimmer of gold on the grey waters.

Oh no, not another photo!!

A last shot of the kids before we got into our respective cars. It was a day well spent. Bonding somehow seems to work best in the Christmas season.

This is my entry for Our World Tuesday. Click on the link and see what’s happening in other corners of the globe on the last week of 2011. My thanks to the wonderful team who makes this possible!

    Those grey scenes don’t look like the stereotypical images we have of India – more like London! I particularly like the “sun on sea” photo, which is brilliantly executed.

    What lovely misty shots! Love the splash of yellow amidst the rain…

  3. What a grey day for a picnic. We call those clouds, Buttermilk clouds! Who is the cute little girl in red? She kind of looks like my granddaughter.

    Lovely gray and pastel scenes. I like the little plants that manage to survive in such conditions.

    A dull day sure but you found so many things around which others wouldn’t even notice.

    Hi Kanak, Just went through all the posts I missed on your blogs, while on holiday. Many of the pictures and text on your blog are like poetry. Loved the new look of both your blogs. My son was particularly curious about the falling snow in your blog.

    How wonderful that your family spent the day at the beach. Even if the skies were grey, there is always something to enjoy while walking on the beach. Lovely photos, especially the last shot of all the children. Happy Holidays and I wish you and your family a very Happy New Years.

    It is indeed very cold as I can even see snow falling in your blog. I like the picture of the sun and its rays reflected on the water. It seems to stretch till infinity. Wishing you Happy New Year 2012!
