I’ve recently reviewed some photos on an old hard drive that I’ve not seen in a while; lots of travelling pictures from various places in North America, Asia and Europe.
I came across these photos from India, that I had taken in April 2011. At this time of year India begins to transition into its monsoon season.
When I visited the state of Kerala in south-west India, I mainly remember outrageously warm sun, vegetation in a plethora of colours and clear skies. Having revisited these photos, I do remember that there were a few days where the whether was overcast and even thunderous.
This side to the country is one that you don’t really think of that often – or if you do, you think of the absolute extreme, the middle of monsoon.
I think these images represent those in-between days quite well, and those of us in Europe, know overcast weather, far too well.
India, even on those rare occasions when the colour seems lost is completely captivating.

22nd April, 2014 marks World Earth Day.
One month ago I had just arrived in Cape Town.
I’ve travelled a lot – and never have I been somewhere as diverse as Cape Town: Mountains, beach, ocean(s) and a city area.
I am so appreciative of this planet, and it’s natural beauty. Cape Town seems like a good place to celebrate on Earth Day 2014.

We had the small, but by no means unassuming Klein-Hangklip peak of False Bay behind us, and the cold, refreshing and stimulating atlantic in front of us. All accompanied by a delicious combination […]
