Skywatch Friday - Sunrise over Gangolli river near Udupi

Early morning drive on the roads in Coastal Karnataka in South India is a pleasant experience. The road is excellent. There is a chill in the air. The greenery, the rivers and their estuaries, the sea all add to the beauty of the drive.

We were driving in Coastal Karnataka last week and happened to see the beautiful sunrise over Gangolli river on our way to Udupi from Kundapur.

The sun was coming up reluctantly.

The still waters of the river was perfect foreground for the reflecting the crimson ball in the sky.

We stopped for a minute on the bridge and clicked this picture.
