[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Early morning shot at Lang Co Bay and a lone fisherman in his coracle - a true basket boat, a very common sight in the coast of Vietnam. I should imagine it takes some considerable skill to maneuver the craft.

Interesting to note that coracles remain in widespread use and continue to serve a significant economic function in Vietnam. The coracles come in many sizes and normally are carried aboard larger fishing boats, where they are used as tenders and for handling nets.

They are also used for fishing in shallow water which is normally less than a mile offshore as shown in this picture.

Setting: 80 mm, 1/320 sec, F6.3, ISO 200, 0815 hrs & Polarised

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Excellente prise de vue méritant les éloges.
Une composition très belle, épurée et très réussie.

Ciao Abmdsudi
foto semplice e al contempo semplicemente bella.
Minimalista di grande effetto visivo.

Hello Abmdsudi,
The English word coracle comes from a Welsh word; the Welsh also being traditional users of these curious boats. An excellent minimalist composition. Very pleasant lights and colours and very good sharpness.

Hello Abmdsudi

These circular boats date from Neolithic times in Europe. Amazing to see them still being used today. The lone fisherman in his coracle provides a strong focal point. Good sharpness too. Tfs!
