VIEW OF MARINA BEACH



Visiting marina beach early morning to catch sunrise is a treat to watch,Its also the best time to visit the beach with less crowd activity and mostly people come for there morning walk or running .

             With the 45 days ban for fishing over , we can see lot of activity from fishermen from being preparing themselves for their journey , fishing nets are seen with boat operators and owners checking and waiting right time to enter .catching that scene is possible if you come early at 6.00 am .

                You can take good photos as there are various opportunity in terms of human element ,birds ,fishing boats etc can be used as your foreground and with the spectacular sun rise as a background ,

                          

Life of fishermen at marina beach



As I had gone early to catch the sunrise, I was lucky enough to watch the fisherman who where preparing themselves to leave from marina beach for  fishing .usually they leave early morning


 it seems like these fishermen didn’t venture deep as I could see them coming back in 2 hours time. They where a group of four fishermen with a motorized boat, the motor is removed easily and will be fixed on to the boat during the next trip. I could see a experienced person and others who are all well built.


This fish catch is sold immediately .nochikuppam is a famous area  near to madras light house where you can get fresh catch

                                             With so much experience they could easily  tell whether the sea is rough or calm. They are not equipped with gps and other equipments . its only there fishing nets and some stuffs of utter importance .


Life of a fishermen is always unpredictable ,it can some times be a joy day with a big catch which they  can sell and make money on the other hand  it could be  stress full with no catch as expected or not able to go to fishing due to bad weather


They do literally use the beach to fix there nets and motors










COMING BACK AFTER A HARD DAYS WORK


PULLING THE BOAT BACK TO THE SHORE
