I'm amazed to see such an armada of round basket boats. I only saw less than a handful in my three journeys to Vietnam and none at all during my brief visits to Da Nang. These unusual boats make this an interesting photo that will certainly teach some people something about the world (or a small part of it). The undramatic procedures going on in the foreground make this a photo to my taste.
great! Only can not hear the waves!

An interesting and educational note and a delightful photograph to accompany it - a perfect upload for TE!
Of course, people used coracles in Britain too in the past, particularly for fishing, and they are remarkably light and easily carried on one's back even although they're probably not too seaworthy. I seem to recall that someone once said that to travel in one you had to have your hair parted down the centre to avoid it capsizing. But here we see a veritable fleet of them approaching the shore as well as the solitary fellow on the beach cooking his grub.
This is a very finely composed photograph, the lone fisherman with his upturned coracle or "thung-chai" squatting over his small fire and billy can while we see the distant busy view.
Glorious light, fine colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

yeah, the Beta version is quite a shocking difference isn't it, much clearer, brighter, sharper, happens on most of my Beta shots too.
and that's one pretty cool boat, interesting to hear that they waterproof it every s 6 months or so, I guess thats important huh!
the water out there looks exactly like it does out here in Vancouver in English Bay. excellent TE post, i've learned something new today
Hello Will, Very interesting note about these boats in the shape basket. What inventions the people make to be able to move on the sea. Is it safe? I haven't seen any of these boats in the northern part of Vietnam. Excellent composition with this man preparing some food in this primitive but effective way. Superb picture.

A wondeful panorama view about the area.
Composition and presentation are very nice.

Love that choppy sea, providing additional interest and colour breaker and the coracle that is attractive and the detail shows us what you are describing above. The fisherman is there at the right spot providing the link and liveliness. Excellent daily life shot and good subject matter, Congrats.

I had never seen them, but I found these coracles very interesting, and this photo is a great contribution to TE! And this man preparing his food completes the scene perfectly! Excellent light, colors and sharpness! Beautiful job!

I really like this - it has a good feeling of compositional balance and tells the story of the fishermans life to some extent too.
I imagine this beach would have looked very different back in the Vietnam war. But thankfully "Colonel Kurtz, he dead."

I remember these round basket boats from Hoi An. Good sharpness and color with excellent saturation and framing. The yellow upturned basket contrasts well with the blue sea and sky. Tfs!
