PowerShot Sunday - Muttukadu Lake

Muttukadu lake (facing the mouth)

This picture was shot two years back, before the construction of a small bridge across the backwater lake, adjacent to Muttukadu Bridge, to bear pipe’s carrying drinking water from the Seawater Desalination Plant in Nemmeli, to support water scarcity in Chennai. I have crossed the Muttukadu Lake number of times but ever got a picturesque moment or scene like this where the lake shares the sky blue.

I lightly touched the contrast to just highlight the blue tone and I was totally impressive with the outcome in image and alive as well then. I indeed disappointed with the look right now and after the construction of bridge, the sight was almost interrupted and water wasn't clean due to unclear soil and sand that block the inflow of sea.

Muttukadu is a famous tourist spot and boatyard on the ECR (east coast road) toward Kovalam or Mamallapuram. 

P.SBtw. Goodbye to Google Reader… going to miss the wonderful and easiest tool that assist me following blogs, from the beginning. First time I shifted the blogs (to bloglovin) and there are many alternates but I don’t think anything could be comfort like reader.

Yeah, the Google Reader was so simple and so useful. Now it's not there :(

I have taken some pictures with the pipeline, and I must admit that they don't look anything like the scenery you have got. But it's ok, after all drinking water is important too!

I really like this picture. It's too bad the new bridge blocks the view now.

I, too, will miss Google Reader, but I have switched to Feedly which seems to work very well.
