Along the river, at Britona

Britona sits along the Mandovi River, close to Panjim in the once Portuguese state of Goa in India. Britona is a quaint Goan village. In the mornings, the river is still and the air is clear. It is quiet and peaceful. Kingfishers keep a close eye on the river from treetops and mangroves. R. Mandovi bends and branches out into smaller tributaries. As a result you’ll see layers of mangroves along the edges of the bending tributaries. And more birds. Eagles, Herons and Egrets. Flocks of Asian Openbills reside deeper in the mangroves.

I shot this photo at Britona. Limited edition archival prints are available. If you’d like one, please leave a comment. I’ll then get back to you.

  1. sure looks tranquil – unlike things around here — and I promise to only post uncensored photos in the future – or not – since my mom reads my blog (doh!) 😀

    • Villages in India, especially in the state of Goa have always been very peaceful. All that’s changing. And quickly. Soon there’ll be little or no peace left.

  5. I remember the river systems of Goa. There was never a boring drive in that State. I’m going to start saving up for a print or two. Are you also available in limited edition?

  7. A friend of mine recently visited Mumbai (with a charitable organization) & brought back so many beautiful pictures of children.
    Your images are wonderful, too.
