I have crossed the ferry from Siolim to Morjim many times in my childhood and this picture makes me feel very nostalgic. Every picture on this blog speaks to my soul. You photographs are truly an inspiration to me.
You have exceeded all expectations, Rajan! Extremely beautiful.
Look forward to the next batch…
You are truly gifted, my friend. You know how to breathe life [and magic] into a photograph.
Wow! How did you capture that colour!
Beautiful shade for the Chapora waters.
Fantastic Photography and a beautiful place. Sadly I dont belong to that place anymore. Its a one of its kind villages in My Beautiful Goa. LOve you Siolim.

That is a strange colour for sunrise. I must say, I have never seen those colours at sunrise.
