[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Goa has huge trees, decidous and palm trees. There is a large forest cover also. the fight now is between outside sources of money, especially Russians, waiting to cut the forest, develop the beaches, and make Goa an expensive international fun city. India always suffers from electricity and clean (or lack of any water at all problems), and no real infrastructure. Developing Goa would just make foreigners rich, and rob the land further it would seem.

Hello Gloria,
Beautiful capture.Well seen framed and composed.I liked lighting and visual impact also a lot.

You are absolutely right.
I was born here; in "Ilhas, Ribandar" very close to Panaji.
Was there 9 years ago; I swore NEVER to return. Had left
Goa, the first time, when I was 5 years old. In my old age I returned to find "... always suffers from electricity and clean (or lack of any water at all problems), and no real infrastructure." As your photo clearly shows "pollution" and more problems of enormous poverty.
Thanks for sharing. Best regards, Mario.

Salut Gloria
Cette arbre aussi est très intéressant, bon point de vue et belle lumière, J'aime bien..!
Merci et au revoir...JP
