Sitting by the Water

This photograph of me sitting on the banks of Ameenpur Lake, was taken by my wife. I had gone there hoping to see some migratory birds which frequent this water body. Although the sighting was not good that day, the cool weather and the breeze blowing over the water more than made up for it.


I have always enjoyed sitting idle beside a pond or lake and spending my time observing the water. There’s so much to see and hear. I love to follow the ripples on the surface of the water. The calm surface of the water is sometimes broken by a string of bubbles, indicating the presence of a fish or other creature just below the surface. Often a fish can be seen breaking the surface of the water with its snout open to suck in mouthfuls of air. A sudden sharp “whoosh”sound usually means a kingfisher just swooped down to make a killing. These and so much more.

Water in this form usually has a very soothing effect on me. It really works well in taking away all the stress and fills my mind with joy.
