Photographer's Note

The Sundarbans area has a network of interconnecting waterways. The larger channels are often a mile wide running in a north-south direction. The rivers and the channels now carry little freshwater as they are mostly cut off from the Ganges, the main source of fresh water. As a result of the subsidence of the Bengal Basin and a gradual eastward tilting of the overlying crust the Hooghly-Bhagirathi channels have progressively shifted eastwards since the seventeenth century.
