Photographer's Note

Just across the border of Bangladesh near the Tamabil-Dawki checkpost flows the beautiful Dawki river with greenish-blueish water so clear that one can see the bottom of the river even from as high as the bridge over the river. It flows very close to the customs checkpost at Dawki with Jaintia Hills District on one side and East Khasi Hills District on the other. As it enters the plains of Bangladesh it loses its beautiful color and becomes heavily strewn with rocks and small boulders.

Located at the end of the Guwahati-Shillong-Dawki Raod, Dawki is a small town well known for its sweet, juicy orange markets.

I took the photograph, just after crossing the Bangladesh border, near the beautiful suspension bridge (built by the British colonial rulers before India's independence) over the Dawki river on our way to Cherrapunjee. Again, like many of my previous posts it was almost noon. I was so much taken by the tranquility of the place - the river and the fishermen, the boats which seemed to be floating on air I took some shots instead of the harsh light. Later in photoshop I decreased the Brightness and added slight USM.
