Palm Fronds and the Church

The 17th C. Church of Nossa Señhora Assunta in the village of Velsão is ensconced in a swath of palm trees. This soothing sight typifies the landscape of coastal Goa. I made several early morning rounds spread over many months to the hillock at Cuelim until I got the lighting just right.

    Really beautiful. Reminds me of a similar site in Kerala which is a tourist spot where people flock to have this aerial view.

    The cuelim hill is my favorite spot during the rains. But this landscape may soon disappear. I understand that some local politicians and bigwigs have already laid their claim on the land on this hill surrounding this church as well.ReplyCancel

    The Church seems to be frightened and lurking through the palms – “When will the axe fall here !!!?!?!?”ReplyCancel
