Returning Sails and Beach Cricket

Returning Sails and Beach Cricket

The full version of Richard Clapton's "Out on the Island" because I love the song and think it fits well these images of coastal life in Sri Lanka.Don’t have to fight the contradictions, And out on the island, Even the victim ends up winning.

Ella was definitely my most favourite place in Sri Lanka at all times. I could spend there 2 weeks and not get bored of the landscapes.

Asian Water Buffalo (Bubalus arnee migona) DSC_1152

Asian Water Buffalo (Bubalus arnee migona) DSC_1152

The endangered wild Asian water buffalo (Bubalus arnee) is the likely ancestor of the domestic water buffalo (B. bubalis). Its horns are large, well separated and curve outward. The domestic water buffalo horns are smaller and curve inward. Unfortunately, it seems that most wild Asian water buffalo in Sri Lanka have mixed genes with the domestic taxa. Most farmers care little about their domestic stock interbreeding with the wild water buffalos.
