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.
