Aerial photos showcase the annual flamingo migration

Aerial photos showcase the annual flamingo migration that transforms India’s Pulicat Lake into a vibrant spectacle.



Each January, Pulicat Lake in Tamil Nadu, India, harbours tens of thousands of lanky, pink-feathered birds that gather in the warm waters during their annual migration.


Approximately 20 flocks of flamingo’s land in the region in early November and stay until May, transforming the 750-square kilometres of brackish lagoons into breeding grounds for the long-legged creatures.


Photographer Raj Mohan documented these temporary settlements in a series of aerial images that capture the birds’ sprawling, even bizarre formations. The avian dot the landscape, congregate in heart-shaped groups, and align in long, perfect diagonals, seemingly choreographed arrangements visible only from above.


Mohan’s images were taken during what’s known as the annual flamingo festival, which “promote(s) tourism at Pulicat. Several bird photography contests, environment education sensitization programs, school excursions, etc., are organized to increase awareness,” he shares on Petra Pixel.


“This attracts a large number of bird watchers and photographers from different places.” In addition to the spectacle they create, the flamingos also help to control the otherwise rampant algae growth in the lake and prevent the need for human intervention.

Studio Puisto creates lakeside sauna and restaurant in Finland

Studio Puisto creates lakeside sauna and restaurant in Finland



Black-painted timber forms shelter large terraces overlooking the landscape at the Pistohiekka Resort, which Helsinki-based Studio Puisto has created on the edge of Lake Saimaa in Finland. Nestled in a rocky cove surrounded by trees, the resort comprises two square buildings that house a restaurantand saunas.


Studio Puisto has punctured both buildings with an oculus-like void in their centres, designed to “invite the scenery in”.


“The starting point for the Pistohiekka sauna-restaurant was the magnificent location, situated between rocky areas in a tranquil cove,” said the architecture studio. “With the different features of the area carefully considered in the placement of the buildings, the result is a concept where two buildings seem to invite the surrounding scenery in,” it continued.


Pistohiekka Resort forms part of a wider plan to boost tourism and revive the area in southeastern Finland, which had previously been a popular sauna and leisure spot in the 1980s. Both buildings present blank facades to the northeast where several residential cabins dot the forest but open to face the lake on the west side.


Here, they lead out to stepped, rock-lined terraces that are made from wood and provide access to two landing stages for boats. The interiors of both volumes are organised around their terraces. At the restaurant, the terrace is largely uncovered, while the one at the sauna building is more sheltered and private.


In the restaurant, the central circular void is lined with glazing to provide diners with views across the lake. Outside, the roof extends to partially cover the deck and is finished with a radial pattern of timber slats on its underside.
