Description:
Think of a place to go on a holiday in Nepal, you think of Pokhara and think of Pokhara you think of the beautiful Fewa Lake. The above picture shows overnight rain filling the boats docked at Fewa Lake.

It also shows something that is now common around the Fewa Lake. The existence of Fewa Lake is in peril. Human encroachment, unsustainable tourism development and the haphazard growth of aquatic plants and weeds taking away the beauty of fewa lake. Hope this precious jewel is saved in time and does not see the same fate as some other lakes.

    No doubt this is a perfect landscape shot that addressed an urgent need of Fewa Lake conservation. This picture portrayed the issue of ‘Fewa Lake conservation’ very effectively, than those several pictures that has been posted here in LIN previously. Unattained boats as a sign of slackness in tourism, local doing their laundry as a proof of insensitivity toward conservation of the lake and fast encroaching water plants which are eating up the lake day by day. I feel it is such an irony that we ‘people’ are helpless to stop the beauty of Fewa Lake getting robbed.

    The colorful boats add a tremendous feeling of tranquility to the whole picture and give more balance to the composition. Because of creative compostion it also looks like a painting. Use of the wide angle (lens) enabled Abishesh to gain ample amount of sharpness. Excellent Work!

    And yes I am happy to see pictures getting posted here in LIN that has journalistic notion. This new trend will promote not just photography but also photojournalism for sure.

    Small advice to LIN Editor: this picture looks distorted while viewing in its main page because of its larger size. Why don’t you reduce the size to make it fit for the main page and put a link to next page for viewers to view it in full size.
