  1. (EN) I’m not able to describe the magic, light and shadows,the flight of birds,etc. I feel to be there.I agree: wonderful πŸ™‚
    (IT) Non riesco a descrivere la magia,luce e ombre,il volo degli uccelli, ecc. Mi sento lΓ­.Concordo: stupendo πŸ™‚


    1. Thank you so much, Amy πŸ™‚

      Can you believe it, I shot it in the middle of a city, Chennai, the fourth largest in India, and I was just spell bound once this swarm of crows started coming from all direction and finally settles down on some big tress around.

      In village areas, this is a common sight by sunset but hard to spot in cities, I was just lucky πŸ™‚


    1. You are absolutely right, and these guys were crows, who really don’t bother to give an intentional knock to our head πŸ™‚

      This was totally surprising and a rare thing in cityscape… anyways I was lucky to get a good image πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much for stopping by, Sue πŸ™‚

      Have a beautiful day ahead πŸ™‚

  2. Amazing shot, Sreejith. Well done. You never disappoint with your camera. Birds flying around, excited for the sunset, perhaps. I’m sure they are all rushing back to their nests or something.

    What a brilliant sunset over there in India. Very warm orange colours, I hope you enjoyed this stunning view. I’ve always wondered is it hard to catch a good sunset in India? I’ve chased sunsets in Melbourne over the past few weeks – there’s a lot of waiting for the sun to go down πŸ™‚


    1. Mabel, I can guarantee you a minimum of 250 beautiful sunsets and sunrises in a calender year, here in South India πŸ™‚

      I just love sunsets and I had rarely seen any sunrises in my life πŸ™‚

      Here In Kerala, the whole ambiance becomes so dramatic as the sun descends below the mountains or slowly plunges in the backwaters or the Arabian Sea.

      But, this image was shot in Chennai, one of the largest city in India and we were on the terrace of my cousin’s apartment complex. Then came this swarm of crows and it was so noisy out there, lucky to get this image without being hit by some of them πŸ™‚


      1. Never knew South India had so many beautiful sunsets. Melbourne has beautiful sunsets too but they don’t come by each week.

        The beautiful parts of nature always seems to find you, Sreejith…and I dare say you go after them too. Keep up the great photography πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much, Dalo πŸ™‚

      The sunsets are so warm and vibrant in these part of the world.

      When a swarm of crows decides to have a public meeting, it’s better to leave the place for them… πŸ™‚


      1. Yea, it’s so true… I was not sure about what to post for this theme and seeing Paula’s post, I selected this one.

        There is a beauty in anarchy or randomness, I feel, the beauty of nature,right?

        Thanks a lot for your time, Yvette πŸ™‚
