I took this photo at first light one morning on the backwaters surrounding Munroe Island in Kerala. I was taken on an unforgettable two hour boat paddle through the rivers surrounding the island on a small wooden canoe.
I love the effect a wide angle gives when you use a very low angle point of view. As I was paddled along the river I carefully lowered the camera as close to the water as possible and took several shots. The morning light was beautiful and I love the natural motion of the river captured this close to the water. I took the shot as wide as I could go at 16mm to include the lush vegetation on either side of the river and the vibrant first light above the horizon in the distance.
I spent about a week on Munroe island on my six month trip around India and it was definitely one one of my favourite places I visited. An extremely calm area of nature which is a welcome difference to some of the chaotic cities and urban areas. Hire a bike or walk around the island and be sure to take one of the morning boat trips, you will not be disappointed. I hope to return one day!
