photoblog image Along the Hooghly

Along the Hooghly

I thought I would show a few more shots from my boat ride down the Hooghly River. These were taken on the river just North of Kolkata, India.

You can see more shots from the Hooghly here . They are some of my favorite shots.

Amazing! More amazing though, knowing India's population, is not seeing anybody here!
The vegetation is clearly trying to take over, here!
Lovely shot!

Your colours continue to impress me, Charles. I'm enjoying my Indian experiences.
I really like your pictures around the Hooghly, inevitably remind me of Kipling.

What an amazing trip that must have been. Truely an adventure I wish I could take. You have some remarkable images from it.
Ambiance un peu dramatique et une voie sans issue qui fait un peu peur ...
thank you for adding the link to the other photographs - i'm new here and so hadn't seen them yet. this looks like a beautiful place.
This is a favorite. How did you get that soft look at the top of the photo?
A nice one, good composiiton and light.
Vous aussi vous étiez au bord de l'eau mais sans doute une plus grande rivière !
Bonne journée Charles
Special effect. I like the glowing. It reminds me of Holland.
Love the way the steps lead in and nice muted colours Charles
