Photo Essay – Hauz Khas Lake, Near Green Park
An urban oasis.
[Text and pictures by Mayank Austen Soofi]
The lake is still. Its dead trees lie marooned, partially submerged in water; the bare trunks standing erect. Ducks swim, leaving a trail of ripples behind them. Birds flap noiselessly, coming to rest on stranded boats. The faraway views are blurry because of the mist. Look, the sun is beginning to rise. The early morning scenes at the Hauz Khas lake in Deer Park, south Delhi, are one of the city’s most beautiful sights. You must come here before you die
Where Deer Park, Near Hauz Khas Village Nearest Metro Station Green Park Best Time Sunrise
All is still
The road less travelled
The world unexplored
Behind Hauz Khas Village skyline
Flames in the water
A new world emerges
Big lake loneliness
Take a deep breath, and relax
Clear light of the day
Into the wild
Let’s meet here
This post brought a smile 🙂
Almost as if I could recognize the ducks, the dead wood and the reflections just as I could recognize the granny with the sunrise routine. . Wish I could go there more often.
This has got to be the most depressing set of photos of Hauz Khas I have ever seen.
