On a calm and lovely evening, a golden sun sets over the famed backwaters in Kuttanad in Kerala. Kuttanad in Alappuzha (Alleppey) district is the location of most of the famed backwaters of Kerala, accentuating the natural beauty of the region. This photo is from one end of those backwaters near Kavalam. A row of coconut palm trees stand on a fringe of land (varambu) between two water bodies, their reflections playing on the water painted gold by the sunset. The cheapest way to enjoy these backwaters is by the government boat service.
