If I could bottle my favourite scent I’d call it ‘After Rain’.
It will capture the fresh scent of wet grass, vegetation, palm frond, fresh earth and the subtle scent of tropical flowers.
The scent of nature scrubbed clean, and the fresh cool air especially after a heavy downpour.
The shots below were taken on a walk through a village in Cherai Beach, in the state of Kerala, India at the start of the monsoon season in May 2019.
The ‘after rain’ scent here had two extra sidekicks – the smell of the sea and the backwaters.
Cherai Beach is flanked by the Arabian Sea and Cherai lagoon (it’s backwaters) and is a favourite holiday and recreation spot for locals and tourists alike.
On our walk, we got caught in the rain again and sought shelter in this shrine and church along the narrow village road.
