Hello Anil,

Thanks for sharing - are these Jpegs straight out of camera or have you done some post processing?

Hi Anil.
Nice shots, interesting topic! I was just wondering if there is a limit to the number of oarsmen per boat, or can you just keep squeezing them on until they get in each others way?

Cheers Graham.

Hi Graham ,

The snake headed Boat are called "Chundan Vallam" .

Here is a Link with all the details of the Boat , crew and its tradition during Aranmula Boat Race.

Please visit : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chundan_Vallam .

Hope you have received all the details you required.

Thank you for visiting.

Anil George

(N.B) : The Ideal Way shoot this Boat Race is to Hire a Private Boat in Advance and shoot from that Boat.
i put up my two Beach Umbrellas and 2 Plastic chairs on the Opposite side of the Main Venue. It soon became too crowded and i had no room to move my Location. i can tell you that even 400mm is Less, need a 600mm to 800mm to reach Opposite Bank. i am planning to Hire a Boat and shoot this event from an entire different angle this year in Aug - Sep 2104.
