These two elderly ladies slowly make their way to the village for essentials such as rice, lentils, millet and cooking oil.

Well done Graham. Stark landscape enhances their posture and the color of clothing. Wonderful how people care about the color of their clothing, making sure it is rich and expressive. Matt

Nicely composed along the length of that powerful leading line. We see just enough of the people without seeing too much. Great scene, well captured.

Thanks Matt. India is definitely the place to go if you want bright colours and their clothing is, in most cases, always well laundered and clean.

Thanks Paula, I do have pictures where they are closer but this illustrates better the long journeys they undertake to get the necessities of live. The lady at the rear looked to me to be in her eighties.
