Historic church in a magical setting.
The Church of Mãe de Deus (Mother of God) in Pomburpa is among the oldest in Goa. Founded in 1590, it hews to the Mannerist Neo-Roman style.
The church is seen here from the island of Chorão; they are separated by a tributary of the Mandovi river (although you wouldn’t know it from this vantage point). The monsoon is an especially enchanting time in the area rewarding aficionados with an extended masterclass of green. I have worked this location for the past 8 years and the many
exertions excursions have resulted in a respectable library of photos.
In the first composition a momentary hole in the clouds admits a spot of sunlight on the church. The third image furnishes an example of the depth of field attained to by a Tilt-Shift lens (via the Tilt movement).
Chorao is my mother’s native village.
The pictures brought back memories of my visit in May for the harvest of Mancurad mangoes
Magical place…thanks again
Thank you the pictures are beautiful , amazing
Wonderful photos…thank you for bringing a bit of Goa to me.
Gosh what awesome beauties your photographs of CHORAO…so clean and green..that is what our monsoons do to our landscapes.
Felt so emotional to think that all is not yet lost…no garbage menace and ugly constructions around…hope it remains so.
All the very best in your endeavours. You do make Goa proud. Keep them coming….

Thanks Rajan Sir for this wonderful distance photos..
I also saw your other post some years back on Chorao…Thank a lot.
God bless you always 🙂
The green rice fields and the tree covered hills are such a delight to behold. I know that sometime soon, some dummy will dump concrete on it and build something really ugly.
