On the beaches of Visakhapatnam

Recently I had the chance to visit Visakhapatnam (also known as Vizag) in coastal Andhra Pradesh. This is a picturesque seaside city on the Bay of Bengal, surrounded by the rolling hills of the Eastern Ghats. Visakhapatnam is a city of beautiful, scenic and unspoilt beaches.

Here are a few shots of some of its beaches. First (above) is this big baby I came across on Ramakrishna beach.

Contemplation on Bheemili beach.

Rishikonda beach and a view of the hills.

I really liked the photograph of the boats at Bhimili. We lived in Vizag for seven years and so much of this is familiar and yet you've photographed it in ways that are new for us.

Thanks! Vizag is a place I wouldn't mind living in... it seems so unspoilt!
