Andamans of the Emerald Hills and Azure Waters !

What do you do when your friends are busy frolicking about in water like mermaids and you don't want to go in.

You walk along the beach on the white, soft and powdery sand .....
 


You click crabs.


You admire the emerald hills and the endless blue expanse of water.



And since you cant seem to have enough of the Blue water, you try clicking it from different angles ! 


And wish you lived right here, in a hut like this :P


As the afternoon lengthens into evening, you watch the water change into an amalgam of white and light blue -green.

.
And then the sea turns dark and brooding as the sun prepares to set ...



And then as you watch the sunset, the phrase "Sun setting over the Horizon" takes on a whole new meaning ! 



Can you see the tiny bit of Sun .... 



And finally, you watch awestruck as the water and the sky is painted a rosy Pink. 



A day well spent, wouldn't you say ! 

These pictures were shot at Elephanta Beach where a lot of people come for Snorkeling and Scuba diving. But we reached there in the afternoon, when even the Nariyal paani wallah had sold off his wares and left. We had the whole beach to ourselves. Devoid of all the touristy noises and people, It was very quiet and very peaceful. It felt almost like being stranded on an Island  - A very beautiful Island !

  11. I visited Andamans and Elephanta beach two years back...And I should say that i was initially scared when we (hubby and myself) were alone with just the snorkelling people on the beach...Then slowly my worries were over and then I started enjoying the place :)

    Love to go back...may be one day soon
