another stunning image you took… what Arthus-Bertrand does from the air, you do on ground level… Needless to say I’m a big fan of your work, Michael !
Thanks, Anne – that’s high praise indeed. I really appreciate it. Regards – MS

Wow, so interesting.
a unique and very interesting image, makes the looker look closer , well done
this is so beautiful and so nice to see of different wonderful inventions and industry of peoples. amazingly wonderful shot!!!
Excellent shot and fascinating scene. They have obviously been using these nets for generations and one wonders whether they have depleted the fish stock in the lake yet?
The lake is huge – and, at 7200 feet, it is one of the highest large lakes in the world. There are now more efficient methods of harvesting the lake’s tiny “whitefish” and, like most ancient customs, this one will die along with these old men.
What a breath taking scene. well captured. I envy you so much, you manage to visit to all these facinating places :-)
never seen anything like it before … how absolutely fantastic !!
It is a fascinating image Michael!
I hope they keep their culture alive!
