Award Shortlist   


By jasonrwl
Many thanks for your support on the sunrise picture on the backwaters and especially to those who gave their awards.

This is one of the "mudmen" working on Lake Vembanad. They dive to collect the mud which is then used to build up the flood defences at the side of the backwaters. The poles they carry are used to effectively "anchor" the boat while they dive.

Thanks for looking

The water lilies make such a contrast to the dark mud and the poor men who have to do this job.
Well observed and interesting too.
