Rhythms of the Goan monsoon.
This photo essay depicts a salient aspect of Goan village life during the monsoon season: cultivation of the paddy fields.
Monsoon skies in Goa during July are typically featureless grey. Replacing them in Photoshop with ‘dramatic’ skies – a suggestion I have heard from people who have never experienced the Indian southwest monsoon – would be a travesty.
I could literally smell the red mud in the puddles in the last photograph. Miss the Goan monsoon!
Thank you, Premanand-bab.
I love your “Jacqueline” photo! Beautifully crisp details on her face, lovely bokeh in the background, and very pleasing colors.
Thank you, Bob. 300mm does help melt away the background.
