Sunset @ Mamallapuram

Splendid Sunset
During my last visit to Mamallapuram while coming back from Alambara ford in April, we got to capture some photos on a magnificent sunset. The sun rose down wonderfully across various foregrounds and one remarkable sight among them was the palm trees… which produced stunning silhouettes beside the golden reddish sky.

All these photos are shot from the backyard of the Mamallapuram town and across the Buckingham canal. I have captured sunset many a time off ECR while returning from Mamallapuram in evening, the beauty of round reddish sun never cease to amaze me and the way it play hide-and-seek with palm trees were enchanting.

You perhaps remember this Airplane; I posted sometime long back here which I find parked at Mamallapuram. It was confirmed that the Airplane is yet to convert as a flight restaurant and a prime hotel management has impounded this Boeing 737-200 near Five Rathas of Mamallapuram and opposite to Chariot Beach Resort gateway.

Your sunset photos are magnificent, and I, too, like the silhouettes of the palm trees. I do remember the plane. I wonder if anything will ever be done with it?

The sunset photos are just beautiful! :)

Did you find out how they managed to get the plane to that location? Maybe they dismantled it, shipped the parts using lorries and reassembled it on-site?
