A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed, and is, thereby, a true manifestation of what one feels about life in it's entirety. . . I believe in photography as one means of achieving an ultimate happiness and faith! - Ansel Adams

Alibaug se aya hoon!

A drive from Alibaug to Murud-Janjira is all along the scenic Konkan coast - littered with tiny fishermen colonies, ruins of Portuguese forts, clean white beaches and mountains. Some of the important villages on the way are Akshi (known for Someshwar temple), Revdanda (which has a fort), Therunda, and Korlai (which has a fort atop a mountain). 
Pictured above is an early morning shot of the Alibaug beach against the backdrop of Kolaba fort. Fishermen are seen carrying their nets. One can walk up to the fort wading knee deep waters during low tides or hire a horse cart. Alibaug, 2.5 hr drive from Mumbai, can also be reached by taking a ferry from the Gateway of India upto Mandwa and local transport thereafter. Alibaug is also known for being the birth place of Kanhoji Angre (covered in an earlier post).
