This shot was taken in early morning hours, while traveling in a train passing through Chilka lake (India's largest Brackish water lake) in Odisha.

Separated from the Bay of Bengal by a narrow spit, Chilika is one of India's largest brackish water coastal lakes. Located south of the mouth of the Mahanadi River in unspoilt Orissa, this lake was once a bay of the ocean until it was silted up by monsoon tides.

There are nearby islands, it is now a superb sight for dolphin watching, and even a hot favourite place for migratory birds that arrive from the cold northern areas.

Thank you so much Geoff Plant for your kind spotlight to this shot. I appreciate you from core of my heart for your kind gesture. Dedicating this shot to you.

    Very beautiful...The sunlight reflected in the water looks similar to an angel spirit in the shape of its formation.
