The voyage across Goa‘s mighty River Mandovi begins late in the evening in fading light. Port of embarkation: Ribandar. Destination: the lost island of Divar. Total sailing time is expected to be 5 mins and 25 secs.
Capt. Emidio Fernandes is at the helm.
Midway we encounter unexpected turbulence. A barge loaded with the droppings of Goa‘s ‘mineral farmers’ (aka miners, the destroyers of Goa‘s environment) is headed straight for our ship.
Summoning all his experience, Capt. Fernandes skillfully dodges the incoming missile and your friendly photographer lives to shoot another day.
I have created a android app called as Goychim ferry and have a facebook page for the same. Its a app designed and dedicated for ferry commuters.
Can i share some of the pics from you blog (ferry-crossing-on-the-mandovi) in the page (by mentioning your blog post as the source for the picture)? I found some cool photos in here.
Please reply me back if its fine for you.
Thanks in advance.
Thanks for writing. You may share the link to my blog post. However, if you wish to use the photos themselves, the license is available for purchase.

Excellent pictures and photography.
This is a great help in understanding the use of wide angle lenses.

I used to wonder if one can really use the 14L for regular shooting.. now I dont.
