“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 spray adds energy to the shot while the burning desire to win can be seen in the faces of the rowers.”
