Amazing

These amazing drone shots show the busy lives of commuters on the water in Bangladesh.

The boats are found on the Buriganga River and take millions of people a year across the water to work in the city of Dhaka.

Travel and documentary photographer, Azim Khan Ronnie, 35, of Dhaka, Bangladesh, took the incredible series of pictures earlier this year in April.

He said: “As a photographer, I like to take photos of culture, festivals and religious events as I feel they make for amazing and emotive content.

“I visited the river to get these drone shots over a 3-hour session and I was extremely happy with the results.

“Water transportation is an important means of communication in Bangladesh with more than 700 rivers and numerous oxbow lakes surround us.

“Traditional country boats like these are still popular and thy provide low-cost convenient transport in these extensive inland waterways.”
