These are the specimens of contemporary water crafts from the East and the West, built in traditional outlooks. The houseboats from the backwaters of Kerala in India, used mainly for the tourist purposes, mechanized fishing boats from the coastal belts of the Arabian Sea are the currently available models of the boat designing in the East. Simultaneously we can see the Western counterparts of the sailing crafts and other varieties of boats in the ports of the Arabian Sea in the Western Coasts of India.
In the noon the lake found calm in the gentle air that blew out of the leaves in a peaceful pace and the surface of water remained pleasing to the reflections from the banks…! A leisure boat was at rest near the tree that kept itself blissful in the pleasing wind under the sunshine of the noontime….!The banks awaited the visitors with colorful vessels to move around…!
In the lakes eastwards to the Arabian Sea , the boats travailing and fishing find their postures on the move ,the rest and the rush after fishing in the noon,afternoon and in the evening….,
The contrasting red and blue made the fishing vessels into a fluorescent sea-bird,A bird that shoots out of the waves with catch and colorful wings…, The ethnic cruises pleated in bamboo-panels and Palm-leaves found their trails across the deep blues bordered around with dense green backgrounds of the hot-noon vegetation in the lakeside…,The ripples shone bright and the banks rest under the dark shades…,The backwaters frilled in coconut palms found dozing against noontime hangovers of the dredgers..,And the Kites flew holding the wings ahead, afar from the dozing banks……!And the yards close to the banks breathed in silence !And made the shades more dark and deep in dense deep greens…..!
The shore took rest in the wind that resorted in the shades of the trees in the peace of the sea that waves away the Day…! The vessels in the sea went towards the shore away through the branches waving in the quiet wind that was gentle on the coast that kindle the evening spirit of the land….,
In the bench beneath the shades of the small leaves, a pair took a rest beneath an umbrella in Pink…!
In the last of the last December , the South -West coasts of Kerala in the Southern Part of India were found a little bit moist and the lake sides kept gloomy due to the humid air as if to say farewell to the year passing by..
While viewing from the shore, the evening lake was less noisy and there were not much business on the lakeside and away..I stood there with my little nephew on the shore holding my DSLR (Nikon 600D) waiting for something good enough to get shot upon..
Meanwhile heard the sound of the waves arising with the moving away of a vessel from the lakeside departure point. It was the local ferry boat starting from the yard for its routine homeward trip of the end of the day..!
