Cowherding

India - Tamil Nadu - Madurai

The typical natural vegetation of the rural land around Madurai with a cowherding man, a task that you can still do when you get older: grandma will look after the grandchildren while grandpa is looking after the animals .... :)).

It had been raining the day before, you see still some puddles in the tractor-tracks. Mostly the land is totally dry and rice-fields are irrigated by lots of little channels. The agriculture is highly depending on the Vaigai-Dam and on the groundwater level, every year the wells have to be bored deeper cause the ground water-level goes further down.


other sizes: small medium original

Excellent color and desirable definition.
