Exploring the Floating Jungle

Mangrove Forest on the Bentara River, Sri Lanka by Son of the Morning Light on 500px.com

Dense mangrove and nipa palm thickets grow straight out of the Bentara River, often making it impossible to distinguish between water and dry land. The best way to explore the river and its jungle banks is of course by boat, thus also avoiding the possibility of stumbling upon an estuarine crocodile lurking in the gloom of the shallows. Shot on assignment for Serendib, the inflight magazine of SriLankan Airlines. For more on the Bentara River, see my story, Eternal Bentota, in the November 2016 issue.
