Beach Trek from Kumta to Gokarna

I had been to (Full Moon) Beach trek with my BASC friends on a weekend. We all had great time there with loads of fun, cooking, campfire, full moon beach walk, exploring the unknown trail, boat ride, evening bath at sea and finally the festival at Gokarna temple. I wish if every weekend were to be like this. There were first timers and experienced trekkers, but this was a totally different experience - all in the sea shore including dinner, campfire and over night stay. We covered Kumta Beach, vanamali beach, Mangodlu beach, Holanagadde beach, Sangam beach, Barka beach, Tadadi port, Aganashini river bank, Paradise beach, Halfmoon beach, Om beach, Kudle beach, Gokarna beach and Gokarna Temple.

Boat ride at OM Beach

I had been to full moon beach trek recently with my friends. We had to walk from Kumta to Gokarna beach in 2 days covering a distance of 30 kms. We managed to reach the port and a river. we had to cross the river, but as we did not have enough time and had lost our way earlier in the trek.. we decided to cover halfmoon beach, paradise beach, Om beach by boat. We enjoyed the boat ride. Check out this video and don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel to get more updates on photography.

Light House during Monsoon

It was all dark and was about to rain in the evening, all alone in the beach when I shot this picture. Picture of light house, a tower and a temple from a distance of more than a km away. I spent my childhood and college days here and used to go for a walk in the evening almost everyday. Love this place.

New visitor at home -Peacock

In my blog when I speak about visitors it usually is about computers and humans. But once in a while we do get really unique visitors, but this time its at home and not my blog. Captured this picture of peacock which was on top of fence behind my mom's garden. Quickly pulled my point and shoot camera to capture this.

Srinagar-Leh Highway

I had captured this image while going by cab (Tata Sumo) to Sonamarg from Srinagar. Just put my head out to capture this beautiful landscape with a house to the left side. As you can see in this image, the roof is covered with a metal sheet. Almost all houses here in this region have this on top of their house. During winter there will be heavy snowfall and these metal sheets will not allow snow to stay on top and can slide easily. I visited this place during summer (Aug 2013) and I could see only few patches of snow high above. Its almost 2 to 3 hours of ride from Srinagar to Sonamarg. A must visit place for its beautiful landscape. Below is the photo that I have uploaded on my Google Plus account and Facebook. Follow my page for more pics.
