Took this shot during an Annual Boat Race (Vallam Kali) held near Alappuzha, Kerala, India. The main attraction of the race is the Snake Boat (Chundan Vallam) (in picture) – a 120 foot long boat that moves along the water like a snake (hence the name). The boat is manned by four helmsmen, 25 cheerers / singers and 100 – 125 oarsmen who row in unison to the fast rhythm of the boatmen’s song. The splash and spray in the image gives a sense of motion and fervent activity.
