Photographer's Note

The Island of Sri Lanka is almost hidden in the shadow if India and since long perturbed by political difficulties, and now also since last year recovering from a nature disaster; but this country truly is such a precious treasure that I decided to post a few Sri Lanka images this week for obvious reasons.

These ladies are walking home along the beach of Negombo carrying wood that will be used for cooking diner.
While the waves break on the beach and the wind blows hard, they walk along with rhythmic and sure steps in the tropical afternoon heat.
Their feet even barely seem to touch the fine and soft white sand as they move ahead, carrying the weight of walking wood.

I post a B/W version of this image in a WS, since the colours on the original are not very bright. I thought a B/W might work better?
