Homeward bound

Chilka Lake circa 2007.

The birds go about their business undeterred by the sound of the small motorized launch that we were traveling in.  Looks like one of the birds is following the other home.

After two sweltering days, the sky turned dark in the evening.  The dark clouds was an ominous sign of a thunderstorm that followed soon enough.

Sunflowers in summer.

Shot with the Nikon D300 and the Tamron 70-300 AF. The Tamron 70-300 AF produced an amazingly smooth bokeh at f5.6 and 300mm.
