Rajan.
Thank you for posting this and the link to your explanation of what is actually occurring. Fotos can lie and I think it's incumbent on us who make them to be carefully honest about this.

Wonderful images Rajan! I saw whole video on how certain kinds of sand was running low, and like oil, they have to go further into nature to extract the sand and thereby damage the ecosytem. Never would have guessed this about sand.

Richard, Eric, John, and Paulo - thank you.

John, illegal and unregulated sand mining is a global menace. The search keywords "sand mining" brings up several links. See, for instance -

The image is wonderful with the haze and all these boats together but the title already was a grim intimation of the job of these men and their boats.
