The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Out of this world

The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Out of this world

This week, share a photo that takes a familiar scene — a place you frequent, a face you know well, an activity you engage in regularly — and makes it look and feel like something out of this world. Feel free to interpret the theme as loosely as you see fit. I look forward to seeing your photos!

One of my favourite places is the lake in my place. Long back mud was being removed here  for the brick factory. Over the years changes have been taking place. Inlets have been made for water to come into this great big bowl during our monsoon season. By September the lake is full. Once the monsoon season ends the water level slowly starts going down. It keeps going down till the monsoon season starts again. The depth is 100 feet in the middle and walking track around the lake is of 2 kms. In certain places there are ridges on the lake bed and I saw birds in the water by the ridge and that place looked so very different at close up.


( This was last August when the lake was full )


( This photo was taken about ten days ago, they are wild flowers which see daylight when we start seeing the lake bed)

This looks like the side of some canyon 🙂

A very small island where these birds are holding a meeting before retiring for the day.

  1. An interesting series of photos of the lake that seems to have a very changeable character. I’ve never come across a plant that grows under water then flowers when the water dries up.
