[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the seascape from Bogmollo Beach Resort (a nice ***** star hotel); Bogmollo Beach is closest to the airport. Far at horizon you can see Grandes Island which is about to be hit by heavy monsoon storm. The photograph is shot from my room's (#505) balcony.

Goa sea is known for its underwater currents like many other sea beaches of the world. One has to be extra careful while swimming......there are no sharks but beware of jelly fishes. I was also told about the existence of quick sand close to the creeck which is partly seen on your right (middle) of the photograph.

The landscape is dedicated to my mentor, philosopher cum friend Bob Shannon.

Hi Subhash,

I saw these monsoon clouds over the mountains for a month but we have come to the end of the season. They are even more effective over water especially with the view of the island in its path. A beautiful composition and a wonderful dedication to our friend Bob.
