When the sun sets in Osman Sagar lake

Osman sagar is popularly known as Gandipet, it is an artificial lake in the outskirt of Hyderabad. Wikipedia given the details: "Osman sagar was created by damming the Musi River in 1920, for providing drinking water source for Hyderabad, and also saving the city from floods, on the lines of which Hyderabad suffered in 1908. It was during the reign of The Last Nizam of Hyderabad, Osman Ali Khan, hence the lake known as Osman sagar'.

Apart from the beautiful surroundings of this lake, it is also a nice place for sun set view. Some of the pictures that i have taken in this mind refreshing lake are:

"Just beyond the sunset
Waits someone so fair
Just beyond the sunset
All alone they wait there
Their hair is golden
The colour of the sand
Their eyes sparkle in the night
Like diamonds in your hand" 
- David Harris (1966)

-hope you enjoy the sun set view!-
