Palliya Watta

With so much time in my hands I have not posted in a while and I though I'd scribble some thing today. I find it really weird that I love it when I'm busy and not so much when I'm not. I manage to do a lot more when I have lectures and meetings and church and all that going on. Somehow I squeeze in at least 5 to 6 posts a month when things are all over the place.  

Any way, not Long ago Chavie came over for a while and we decided to head out to sea, wait wait, that sounded wrong. No sailors here!, we wanted to head out to the beach, you know?, just to chill. We were fully hacked up after exams and all, so decided to take it easy for a while.

The sky was a little dark that day, since it had been raining and all.The Hendala beach also called the "Palliya Watta Beach" is quite popular these days. It gets packed on weekends and poya days. So there we are walking down a jungly lane to get to the beach and I'll say with out a doubt, we saw The beach at it's best that day.

The sunset was much more clearer that day. And the sea was a bit rough. And it was white.

Zoom in and see the ship moving towards the sun. Pretty cool :D

The sun set was amazing. Chavie and I watched in silence, till the sea gulped the big ball up.

Look how the waves are clashing against the rocks, "In all it's fury", I must say!

Colombo, late afternoon.

Colombo, late evening.

I guess I'm a sucker for sunsets, It took me so long to realize it, hmmm :D Bliss!

Hope you enjoyed the post.



  1. Fabulous sun set photos. The splashy shot is nice too.

    BTW I like your new theme :)

  2. Brilliant... just... brilliant!

  3. I like the new theme too! :D You should change the link colours though, don't show against the black background... :)

    w00t at the photos! :D and I also seem to write more posts when I'm busy, I guess with all this chillaxing my inspiration is running dry... :(

  4. i like your background. nice...

    pictures 2 n 3 made me stop and stare. very beautiful.

    did you know the fairytale about why the tops of wavecrests are white? they're supposed to be the white manes of great seahorses who dream of coming to land, but they always return to the sea that they love too much :)

    judging from your pics, you stumbled upon whole legions of them! keep posting, me-shak!

  5. Looks like you have hit the beach on a perfect day for photography. Gorgeous snaps and they all look very pleasant in the eye.

    Ya! I like the new theme too. But maybe you need to tune it up a lil bit :)

  6. Great pics!!

    My favorite is the wave smashing against the rock, and up into the sunset... Awesome! The overhanging clouds are a great accent.

    Thanks for sharing! I feel like i had a mini trip to the coast, myself. :)

  7. Soothing!
    I like the wave breaking image the most.
