Another scene from the backwaters of Kerala, many of the arean has still no road acess and goods including heavy building material is transported in small boats. The heavy goods are delicately balanced as the man try to steer the boat with bamboo poles!

nicely exposed boat against natural beauty,
there are such places where a man has to coexist with nature,nice soft light
a good nonaggressive saturation,
Have a nice day

Beautiful scene, and you have done well by using the tree to frame the canoe.

Lovely to find a correspondent from South India of which I have such great memories, not the least being the Backwaters of Kerala !
This is a very interesting post, with an informative note and a very typical sight, showing the beauty of the place, and the traditional way of transport ! Great composition with the attitude of the boat men and the decoration of the the branch as well as its reflection in the canal !
I wonder if the backwaters will remain so or soon be caught up by modernity and the building of roads ?...
Thanks for sharing and have a good end of the week .
