The Konkan Diary - A Photologue

Tripoto
27th May 2016

Konkan is my backyard & my hometown is Ratnagiri. I had been visiting Ratnagiri since my childhood. and now i'm photographing it. In this photo story i have shared some of my Konkan photos. I have been photographing Konkan since 2011. 

Konkan is not much developed in terms of tourism. Though it has good potential. I wish it will remain as it is and not get spoiled by tourists. Aare vare beach would be my favourite place, if i had to choose one. 

My Village:

We saw this fort in just 15 mins, Jaigad Fort. Nothing much left inside the fort but outer wall will give you mesmerising views around the fort. The outer wall is around a half km, you can take a long walk on it, Its worth it:
