Photographer's Note

"I am writing this at the Cape, in front of the Sea, where three waters meet and furnish a sight unequalled in the world". Mahatma Gandhi.

I can't better the words of an immortal such as Gandhi, but merely add some extra details. The rocks in the foreground are at Cape Comorin, the southern tip of India and the point where the three waters of the Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean meet. In the background, some 400m off-shore, lie two small islands on which the Vivekananda memorial stands.

I imagine the surf as the collision of the three seas. The memorial adds the unmistakable impression that this is India.

The quotation above is taken from the nearby Gandhi memorial which commemorates the Great Man's visit and which housed some of his ashes before they were interned in the Sea.
