Postcards from Kerala : Sunset at Kozhikode

My friend's engagement at Mananthavady was an enjoyable affair. It was a reunion of sorts, with many of our friends coming down to attend the ceremony from different parts of the country. But it was over all too soon, and we had to make our way back to Bangalore to slide back into our 9-6 jobs. Before we did that though, we thought of taking a detour through Kozhikode and stay there for a night. 

It was the 14th of March, 2017. We left from Mananthavady in the morning at around 9, and by the time we reached Kozhikode, it was past noon. As the place is known for some great food, we filled our stomachs to the brim and drove around a bit. We were a little disappointed initially, because the trip to the market place wasn't as fruitful as we had hoped. It was a hot afternoon too, which made things worse. We then drove to the beach, and it was by far the highlight of the trip. The breeze worked on us like elixir, and the soft evening light rejuvenated us completely. We had a really good time just walking around and chilling by the beach. The sky was beautiful and I couldn't resist taking my camera out to take some shots. Even though we wanted to reach our hotel room before sunset, we just could not move from there. We had to experience it here, and it was absolutely worth it. These are some of the shots I managed to take that evening.

I hope you enjoyed the photographs. I try to present better content each time, so if you have any suggestions or advice, feel free to put it down in the comments below. Some more postcards from my travels will be put up by Saturday. Stay tuned and have a great Puja vacation!


  1. Beautiful images. Photos with people in them are most interesting. At least those are my favourites.

    1. Thank you so much. My preference is actually a little different. I like photographs devoid of people more, or maybe a few people in the frame in a few cases. Of course everyone's tastes differ, and that is what makes people so unique and interesting.

  2. This really made me want to add kerala sunset to the list of must-dos! I absolutely love the vibrant colours.

  3. We are really grateful for your blog post. You will find a lot of approaches after visiting your post. I was exactly searching for. Thanks for such post and please keep it up. Great work. whatcountyamiin
