Khijadiya bird sanctuary at dawn

We left the car and started walking as dawn broke. A nilgai bull waded through shallow water to one of the small islands; a francolin ran ahead along the dusty path; cranes called as they flew overhead.

A very alien and isolated mood.

Zhoen, it was strange and very beautiful. Easy to imagine this might be the world in the first few days after humans have gone.
