A rural rice processing place (Haor) just before a storm breaks out in Itna, Kishorganj, Bangladesh. This temporary establishment is built for only the harvesting season which goes 10 – 15 feet under water during rainy season. April, 2007
When I experienced what real luck means. This All happened at Itna, Kishorganj. It was really hard to see the sun when I first landed in Haor & obviously, capturing photos was really out of question. I was watching the beauty and taking some snap shots. But suddenly, around mid day (1 pm) sun came out for a second and I just clicked the camera & the amazing result of it is in front of you. I just love the photo. I still don’t know whether it was my luck or something else. But whatever it is, I am in such a deep love with this photo. Uff! The sky……..it’s just amazing.
Haor is a vast low land and its beauty comes out in the rainy season. It is a challenging job to take a good Haor’s environmental photo in dry season but ‘yes’ I made it up.2008 it took place in Drik calendar.
