Photographer's Note

Only a few days remain of the horrible year 2020. Only a few hours remained of that day in October 1987 when I took this photo.

This is from the beach at Puri, located on the Indian east coast in the state of Orissa (now called Odisha).

Puri is one of the most important temple cities in India, but also a popular beach resort. I spent a couple of days there on a journey along the eastern part of India in the autumn of 1987, starting in Calcutta in the north and ending in the surroundings of Madras (now Chennai) in the south. Then I flew back to Calcutta to catch my flight back home.

I have posted quite many photos from that journey before, but only this one from Puri:

I had strong suspicions that I could find many more photos from my 1987 trip that I had not yet scanned, or scanned so badly that I couldn't show them. So recently I had a look and found a number, which I intend to post. (Provided TrekEarth survives for another month or two.)

This was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.

Since this is probably my last photo for 2020 I want to wish everyone a Much Happier New Year.
