5:30 AM A solitary couple takes a stroll just before sunrise.
6:00 AM A colorful dawn.
6:30 AM Sunlight reflects off the Bay of Bengal.
8:00 AM Young boys cooling down in the surf.
Noon Only mad dogs and Englishmen --and a herd of water buffalo-- go out in the midday sun.
3:30 PM A couple finds some solitude on an almost-deserted beach.
5:00 PM The place to be as the evening cools down.
6:30 PM A full moon rises.

Times are representative; photographs were taken over a period of several years.
