A Beachy affair – Weekly Photo Challenge 2 (gone ,but not forgotten )

weekly photo challenge

This picture was captures on my phone , on a recent trip to Payyambalam beach , Kannur ,Kerala. The beach is not very far from my house , yet it is not very often that I go there... It was such a beautiful evening and I simply loved watching the sunset ,and the magic it played with the colors of the sky and the white apartment buildings in one corner....The evening is gone , but this picture still remains to remind me , not to take any thing or place for granted... As they say , there is beauty in everything ,you only need the eyes to look for it....
