Colombo Sunset

This photo is not from the wild but taken within city limits. This scenery was captured from Marine Drive, Wellawaththa. I pass this stretch every evening, so thought of bringing some evening delights of Colombo.

It gives me the urge to go snorkeling and free diving.

May the days fill you with sunny delights.

Despite the hustle and bustle of Colombo you get such intersting sceneries too :)

Swiss Miss,
Great! I visited Siem Riep and it was an awesome experience. Also I visited qute a lot of places in Phnom Penh too. King's Palace was great! Saw the Tuol Sleng, but not a place I would go again. Also went to Russian market and Central Market many a times :)

Somedays I miss it as I get late to leave office, but most of the days I see this :)

J Bar,
Thanks very much!

A few kilometres away from this point there is a good place for snorkeling.

Thanks very much!

Thanks all for your comments!!

The diversity of the natural beauty there is impressive.
Now i'm dying to go to the beach. :p

Kirigalpoththa said...

Yes..Sri Lanka has amazing diversity when it comes to natural beauty. May be the reasons are its geographical position and being an island.

Thanks for your comments!
