Monsoons or the rainy season is a much awaited season in India. Not only do we wait for the rains to rescue us from the blistering heat but also provide life giving water.
For this week’s Photo Challenge: Elemental, I have attempted to capture the many hues of the rainy season.
But first the promised view of the lush green fields from the train 😉
One tiny single room house in the midst of nowhere – quite a reversal from the cities!
On the way back by car we were caught in a torrential blinding downpour. I thought it was the perfect way to capture the rain 😀
Another way of capturing rain is by focusing on puddles – can you make out how heavily it was raining?
As the rain gathered intensity, some sought shelter…
While the more adventurous ones, reveled in the rains…
But unlike the birds, these three didn’t have any choice and hence they bore it stoically and came out squeaky clean 😀
After the rains – clean fresh and sparkling! Yet the monsoons which bring relief from the sweltering heat and also wrecks havoc in many parts of the country.
The flower pots are a good indicator aren’t they? And this was just after two hours of rain. Thankfully the rain eased and the water receded. I wonder what would have happened if the rains hadn’t stopped…
Thank you for stopping by 😉
