A few nice Hard Water images I found:
Chennai prayed too hard…. Part I
Image by Pandiyan
The city missed monsoons for several years. Wells drying up everywhere. Water table going down where it has never gone before. People got used to buying water. Political parties fortunes depend on the vagaries of rain gods. You can pick out a Chennai resident anywhere by the look he/she gives when people waste water.
One side people try seeding clouds; engineers work on affordable desalination. On the other side some try special ‘poojais’ (prayers)
Perhaps they prayed too hard. We had rains today like we never had before. Well. at least for a long time. 21 cms in five hours and still continuing…

It’s kind of a weird picture… But I like it. The pier kind of "ruins" it in a sense, but it also adds perspective. Pictures of just-water-only are hard to comprehend the scale of, sometimes.
