Sea of insanity...

By Chinga
The theme: Oceans
The undulating shoreline of Kerala (India) is broken by lagoons that merge into inland lakes providing some of the most picturesque picnic spots. One such is the Veli lagoon, separated from the Arabian sea by a narrow sand bar. This is a popular picnic spot in Thiruvananthapuram where the Veli Lake merges with the Arabian Sea. The area is not very well kept and it's a shame because it is full of wildlife and beauty... As we got to the sea we were amazed to see that the sand was very orange (bizarre)...and the waves were orange! Quite spectacular and jaw dropping to look at...Hence the title! Grin
Shots are from archives of our last trip to Kerala.

Fine set Isabel, V4 for me with the human interest,
Once again, a nice set of images and a good narrative. I like V4 with the figures and V1 because there are no footprints in the sand.

Could be algae or pollution - or even just the churning up of fine sand.
Very good pictures!

There are some amazing minerals in the world, providing fantastic colourways.
Of course, having good light, makes the colours really stand out, as your four show.
They make a very interesting 'mouse-over' too, with the figures adding a sense of scale.
In Tsavo, a game park near the coast of Kenya, there is red earth. I have a very amusing shot of a red Elephant..!
Super set, Isabel, thanks for showing them.
