Morning in Goa – Saligao

These photographs were made last month in the village of Saligao.

A short window of a few weeks in January and February brings to Goa a combination of low hanging mist and pastel skies to harmonize the marvellous pre-sunrise scene in the first image below. The foreground bed of green is the foliage of red cowpeas (alsande) cultivated at this time of the year. To the left of the frame is the hillock of Monte de Guirim and its chapel.

Trivia: Since the Cricket World Cup is currently on, I thought I’ll mention this – Saligao is the ancestral village of Anthony De Mello, one of the founders of BCCI and the driving force behind Bombay’s legendary Brabourne Stadium.
