Taken at Santragachi Jheel [Santragachhi Jheel is a large lake, located next to the Santragachhi railway station. This lake attracts large number of migratory birds in the winter months, particularly in December and January. The number has increased in recent years, as migratory birds have started to avoid destinations like the lakes in Alipore Zoo, Kolkata. Birds like Saras Crane from North America and Australia,Gadwall, Northern Shoveler, Northern Pintail, Garganey from north of the Himalayas, and many other local migratory birds such as Cotton Pygmy Goose, Comb Duck etc. are spotted here during this season. ] - Source Wikipedia

In this simplistic shot I wanted to capture the time and mood. The man left the cycle over here at the time of sunset and created a symbolic opportunity to ponder about....The Sun escapes, the man escapes, the time escapes... (The photo was taken around Santragachhi Rly stantion, around 20 km from Howrah.)
