Very delicate. I like it

Thank you, Luis, for your visit and your generous comments. I'm especially glad you like this one because I do, too.

Panoramio has some beautiful photos that show what these nets are like. Here's a lovely one by polytropos. But I didn't have a sunset or even a blue sky. I just tried to good use of what I had!

But you found a way to show the lightness and transparency of the net. It looks like the net would be thrown in the sea at that moment. There is a great elegance in that picture. Congratulations and thanks for your comments.

Marilyn Whiteley on July 12, 2007

Many thanks for your comment. Unfortunately nobody was throwing any nets into the sea at that time. This was about two months after the tsunami, and everyone was afraid to fish.

When I passed this region in the backwaters in december 2002 there was nobody fishing too. I think this nets has only touristic reasons now ;-)

Yes, polytropos, I think you're right. But when we were there, we were told that nobody was fishing by any method, although they needed the fish. They had fears about what the fish were eating.

Great view. The modern material (I suppose...) "on watch" traditional mode of fishing. :)

The Gold Star

Thank you, Janina, for finding this and especially for the Gold Star. It's not the rich, romantic shot that polytropos's is: I didn't have that opportunity. But I've always liked this--the best I could do as we sailed past.

Many thanks, Teresa. I'm glad you like this: it was a lovely sight. Greetings from Canada, Marilyn

Thanks also to whoever sent a location suggestion. I'm sure I don't have it in exactly the right place, but I DO know that I took it about an hour and a half after passing through the lock separating the fresh and salt water, and I don't believe your suggestion fits with that.
