The Rustic pace of life

A perfect Indian village scene - you'll see cattle being led to or from the grazing area and they are all across on the roads (yes - its a road that you see there).

This road travels right through the middle of the jungle and it is not uncommon to spot a tiger or a herd of wild eliphants here. The locals have their share of problems with tigers attacking their cattle, and the Forest officials have their own pains in trying to pursuade the villagers not to venture out into the jungles - the debate goes on as life has to move on.

A very nice picture, I like the low viewpoint and the wonderful clarity.

Can you tell me please, are the cows yoked together to stop them from straying while on the road?
Thomas Mathew: Thanx Ellie. You are right - the cows are yoked together precisely to stop them from straying. Specially the ones that are new to the flock, need some training like us humans smile

A brilliant shot Thomas, everything aspect of it is in equal proportion - contrast & colour wise, very natural and satisfying to the eye. I'm liking the distance & atmosphere a lot, keep at it!

This is a very good picture. Colours are rich; focus is excellent; subject matter is interesting; dust gives a sense of motion; narrative is a story well told.
Thomas Mathew: Thanx Ray. I'm glad you liked it smile
