[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot is taken from a launch in front of Dobanki watch tower in the Sunderbans. Sunderban is (in)famous for her man-eating Royal bengal tigers, estuarine crocodiles, tiger shark, hammerhead shark, cobras (inclusing the King cobra), viper, etc.

Sundarbans, formerly SUNDERBUNDS, vast tract of forest and saltwater swamp forming the lower part of the Ganges Delta, extending about 160 miles (260 km) along the Bay of Bengal from the Hooghly River Estuary (India) to the Meghna River Estuary in Bangladesh.

The Sundarbans are a part of the world's largest delta formed by the rivers Ganges,Brahmaputra and Meghna. The whole tract reaches inland for 60-80 miles (100-130 km).

A network of estuaries, tidal rivers, and creeks intersected by numerous channels, it encloses flat, marshy islands covered with dense forests.

The name Sundarbans is perhaps derived from the term meaning "forest of sundari, a reference to the large mangrove tree that provides valuable fuel. Along the coast the forest passes into a mangrove swamp; the southern region, with numerous wild animals and Crocodile- infested estuaries, is virtually uninhabited. It is one of the last preserves of the Bengal tiger and the site of a tiger preservation project.

Hi Victor,
A very nice capture of this beautiful scenery of Sundarbans. But think the sky is very much blue here. It might be my PC screen. Anyway a lovely composition with very good view. Thanks a lot for sharing.
