Play of light and shadows: Bekal Fort

It was quite an unplanned trip to the ‘Bekal fort‘ last day, and as always, I was late to reach 🙂

But, nature was so kind to me that, we were in for a great treat… treat of light and shadows…

Here it is, a few images I managed to capture at sunset 🙂

Have a beautiful week ahead 🙂

    1. I could guess, how frustrating it is for my friends who follows me and taking their time out and commenting on my blog posts, to see my inconsistent blogging and extremely late responses…

      Sorry for that…

      It’s really a great feel to see a comment from you and so good to see that you are posting frequently now a days 🙂

      Good thing is, life is really interesting and I am able to be part of many meaningful activities in recent past.

      Have a beautiful weekend, Yvette 🙂

      1. Hi sreejith – I like to quote Amy moranto when it comes to blog pace and even comment replies
        – she says the blogosphere will always be here – and actually I respect those who draw boundaries and can pause or have a scattered pace – and unless someone is making big bucks from their blog – well they need to use wisdom in how they engage –
        I see a few folks sucked in (like a vortex) and they are not even enjoying blogging anymore because it is rote or habit –
        And so even if we lose some followers (sniff – this has happened to me during my long breaks and it sucks but oh well) the fact is we must blog in healthy ways – right

  2. Amazing sunsets along down Bekal fort. What an orange sky…almost like how someone spilled orange juice all over. Trips can be unplanned, life is unplanned and you just got to roll along with it. Hope you’ve been well, Sreejith. Take care 🙂

    1. I am doing great, Mabel and life has been very interesting over last couple of months 🙂

      As you said, there is a beauty in unplanned life… and I always been an advocate of such a life.

      But, the most common complaint that I have to hear (can’t respond) is I am impractical for the calls I took in life.

      As you could expect in Indian and Chinese cultures, almost everyone in our community/village feels that they got the right to criticize us on even a very personal things, ha ha 🙂

      Best way is to keep calm, follow your instincts, work hard and hope, your day will come soon 🙂

      I really could see it coming 🙂

      Thanks again for your relentless support, Mabel, and have a beautiful weekend 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Takami 🙂

      These, post monsoon months are just beautiful for the dramatic skies here in Kerala.

      Lucky to spend some time with my family at a nearby fort, which is ideally located on the beach…

    1. Thank you so much, Jeff 🙂

      Those birds are peacocks and it was extremely rare to find them near human inhabitations. Now a days, due to climate changes it’s a common to spot peacocks almost everywhere in Kerala.

      In fact, peacock is the national bird of India 🙂


    1. Thank you so much, Sue 🙂

      Hope you are doing great 🙂

      Post Monsoon months are really beautiful here in Kerala. Land is still lush green, sky is clear, and the sunsets are so dramatic with cloud formations…

      I was on a family trip and my kids had a great time at the beach 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Dalo, for your words of appreciation 🙂

      This fort is located so close to the beach and the views are always great from here.

      But, what really caught my attention was the peacocks. That was quite an unexpected sight indeed and a bit worrying too…

      They live in semi arid places and was not at all seen in our villages.

      But, recently more and more peacocks are coming out of the forest lands and started encroaching the vegetable farms and all.

      Experts say that it’s a clear sign of global warming and habitat destruction.

      Lot of changes happening in this beautiful land over last some years and the recent massive floods was the epitome of all it all.

      Thanks again for your time and well wishes 🙂

      Have a beautiful weekend 🙂


    1. Thank you so much, Esmee for your visit and kind words 🙂

      Yes, of course, they are taking selfies and now this is the most common sight at any tourist spot, right?

      Have a great time 🙂


    1. Thank you so much for your kind words 🙂

      Peacocks were a rare sight even a few years back and I don’t remember spotting them anywhere other than in a Zoo.

      Now, as an impact of climate change, they are moving our of forest lands and started easily living in semi urban areas.

      They are beautiful but the message they bring in so not so great 😦


    1. Great to see that you had been to this part of Kerala and quite interestingly my sister’s name is Kavitha too 🙂

      Best thing about North Kerala is, it’s still unspoiled and least touristy.

      Thanks again for your time 🙂


    1. So good to hear that you had been to North Kerala and seen Bekal fort 🙂

      Thank you so much for your visit and sharing your kind words 🙂

      I am yet to explore the beautiful seven sisters of north east, but will certainly do it 🙂

      Have a great time 🙂
