Tree Surprise in a Dam Backwater

There's a very small village named Tivre [तिवरे in local language] in the Konkan area of the Maharashtra state in India. One of my friends was born there. I have been there 2 times. What a beauty that place has!

In the early monsoon of 2006, during my first visit there, I was amazed to see a fallen tree very unreasonably lying at a place. I have no idea how it reached there. Probably, from the forest, it fell down in a river, and reached here with the flow of the river.

Do you want to see that tree? Here it is…

Peace in Konkan - A Dam's Backwater in a Small Village named Tivre. It is built on a river named Vashishti.

The above photograph was taken sitting on a small dam's wall, facing towards the backwaters. The dam is built on a river named Vashishti passing through Tivre, probably originating from the dense forests of Koyna in Konkan.

To give you an idea where the photo was taken, I have given its location in a map below. If you zoom out, you will find out how beautiful the location of the village is.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog - glad you liked the photos. I did Part One in a post on 20 August which you may like to have a look at though there's much less countryside! I'm planning to do a follow-up on Seville, Cordoba & Granada which are all really outstanding!

    So pleased I've come across your site - the photos above are stunning, especially the tree branch! So solitary & ethereal!

    Hope you're having a great week!

  6. Beautiful body of water and the surrounding green landscape. Your theory sounds right. The tree must have come down a river, since there don't seem to be trees surrounding the lake.

  7. Tivre is like a jewel in its beautiful setting!

    How very odd that that driftwood tree ended up in the dam's reservoir. The power of nature!
