The water taxi

The water taxi
Sunderbans, Bay of Bengal. India. The islands here are of silt washed down by the Ganges and Brahmaputra. They are prone to floods and erosion. Global warming will exteminate them. People and tigers, which swim from island to island, coexist in this fragile environment.

Das sieht nicht unbedingt sicher aus, die vielen Brettchen lassen das Boot sehr wackelig wirken. Toll gesehen!

A lovely candid capture of these two, Diana! It's amazing what we take for granted here in the large city, where time appears to be so important, but here, time almost stands still! A fabulous photo and so beautifully presented!

I love the calmness of it all with such a leaky boat, and crocodiles and swimming tigers about!

Certainly it is a very different life!!
Thank you Kate.

It is worrying for Bangladesh, climate change plus deforestation affects them so much....

Gvts do not listen to the decades old reasoned argument for Change in our behaviour...

Fine image, Diana, and one which raises such a world-wide problem

This Lovely image was viewed in my favourite group
Thank you for posting in Vigilant Photographers Unite

Diana Australis has replied to Joan+
Agreed, Joan...for both India and Bangladesh in this region...these island will disappear completely, and they are quite populated...plus the lower lying areas of the mainland at the river deltas....
Our government is a total disgrace with respect to climate change...and embarrassment.

Save the planet!!!!!
