View from the river bank
Posted by Brian Jones
23 February 2004 –
This is a view of the village of Karma taken from the opposite side of the river. The view is taken in the early light of morning with mist still in the air. On the opposite side you can see houses which have been raised onto a clay platform to protect them against the inevitable flooding that happens each year. In 1972 the flooding reached a height of 14 feet, a fact poignantly marked on a post in the centre of the village that lies way above any of the current houses.
