Rice Fields and Stone Churches

The villages of Goa in India are surrounded by rice fields. These are flood irrigated. During the dry season, houses, shops and churches are repaired. The laterite stone is covered with a new layer of whitewash, or in the case of this church, concrete. You can see how the fine detail of the column fluting is molded in the concrete coating.
