Languid water and luminous sky come together one late afternoon on a fated boat trip on the backwaters of Kerala.
Fated for the two misadventures that befell our boatmen. Firstly when a boat pulled out into our path as we negotiated a narrow channel and we ran headlong into them. Then later when we ran over the nets of two fishermen. They were in tears but thankfully, due in no small part to the negotiating skills of our travelling companion Shyju, recompense was agreed for both mishaps and we concluded our much delayed boat trip by being able to capture this sunset scene.
