A country boat, amongst floating water hyacinth, in the backwaters of Kerala. These boats are a mainstay for people around the backwater region for travelling in this chain of brackish lagoons and lakes.

This was captured near the Thanneermukkom Bund (Thannermukkom Salt Water Barrier). The barrier built across Lake Vembanad, essentially divides the lake into two parts - one with brackish water perennially and the other half with fresh water fed by the rivers draining in to the lake.
