You know it's the monsoon when...

...the sea is a sullen brooding brown even when the sky is bright blue.

Photos from the Club floor of the Trident, Nariman Point. What an amazing view!

Great shots. Great blog! So: it's the urban dust and waste from 9 long months that makes the sea look muddy and dirty.

Actually Georg, the sea doesn't look like this except in the rainy season. So it can't be the urban dust and waste from 9 months?

Of course, the sea is quite polluted in Bombay, but usually it is a greyish blue.

I think the colour is due to the heavier discharge into the coastal waters by rivers and streams, and consequent desilting and suspended particles in the wayer
