Daily work maybe hard with limited money. But if we stop and look beyond the urban lights, the adverstisments and the latest fashion trends that we keep pursuing, we may find this simple work as graceful and peaceful as any. No headaches, no complaining how your salary is never enough, no tight schedules or due date to keep you up all night. Yes it is physically tiring but your mind is at ease, you get a good night’s sleep and enjoy the simple things in life.

She may not know it but her simple life looks so tranquil and beautiful to our urbanized eyes.

  1. Beautiful picture by Araleya. Same height of shooting point and the boat makes this picture look all natural and earthy, like the environment. Even photographer took this picture at 88.8 mm focal length, she was able to bring those distant water ducks remarkably close to its main subject ‘woman and boat’. It is very good compose dominated by color blue of placid water which add a tremendous feeling of tranquility. Green plant in the foreground is nice.

    The woman in the boat is removing water plant called ‘Jal Kumbi’ (Water Hyacinth) from Fewa Lake which is encroaching lake in fast pace creating enviromental problem. Studies shows 2.5 per cent of the total area of the lake (443 ha) is covered by such water plants obstructing recreational activities of tourists, troubling local fishermen, and even degrading ecology of lake. Thus many concerned committee, entrepreneurs and local people have been annually organizing campaign to clear these water hyacinth.

    I think picture here in LIN should be posted without any extra border or frame. The white frame around the picture, makes it feels more of a postcard, than a picture. If LIN Editor prefers to share Photographer’s personal URL, it can be mentioned in the end of picture description. Let’s viewer enjoy picture as PICTURE.

  2. Nice shot and equally nice description… I loved the floating ducklings playing around the woman. Felt like a mother taking care for her children and children wanting to be around with their mother. What a wonderful connection !!

    Btw, I loved your flickR collection and way of you portray your feeling with so much care. Loved it completely.

  3. Really appreciated job by the lady. With out them our Fewa lake will be swamped by wild plants “Jaal Khumbhi”
