Excellent shot. I love the way the lantern lights up the old fisherman's face and the iconic hills in the background. Bravo.
It's almost like a camera shouldn't/couldn't even exist in that landscape - I had to remind myself that someone took this magical picture.
@Linda Creel I had completely forgotten that this was actually a photograph and someone was really there to take it until I read your comment. Hehe. I guess it's just the kind of picture that you get easily lost in. :)
Nice shot! The birds seem to be the guards of the fisherman.
Are there videos of actual conduct of the cormorant fishing? So interested to seem some. :)
Anyways, a great masterpiece! Kudos!
@Michael Angelo Benigno There is a BBC video with the entire process, and whats funny is the birds don't fish if they are not fed regularly.
