Sad but true – he had cast his nets the previous evening and they yielded barely half a dozen fish.

Stunning capture Vik, so beautifully composed, I love the lines of the boat how it draws the eye down the boat through the frame and that wonderful reflection off that so so still water, I don’t know how you got this shot but I’m glad you did
Cheers Jus!The water was that still – it became one gigantic mirror. And with those clouds above it became an almost ethereal scene.PS: Thank you so much for the buy on Slippery when wet – hope you enjoy it.

Beautiful . . love the stillness of the image :-)
Thank you so much – yeah – he was busy punting away and I shot a series of shots just as he’d lower the punt into the water to get him still.
great shot brother
this is really beautiful Vik! The fisherman almost looks like he is gliding through the clouds!
Hmmm .. that might have made a prettier title!Thanks so much Nic!
Gorgeous tones, Vikram….fabulous composition! and LOVE the title! :-) Guess that means I like it all!
:-))) I was sitting there saying that line again and again to myself each time I saw him bring up an empty net.
I agree with Nicolette…like a boat in the clouds!Great stuff mate.
Thank you so much!!
Another gorgeous piece. Wow.
Thank you so much Rebecca!
Fabulous shot Vikram! The orange on his head really is a nice little touch of colour :)
:-))) I took some pics of him the previous evening when he was setting his nets …. I’d like to think he dressed up for the occassion the next morning hopingI’d be there!! That orange turban really makes a HUGE difference.
A wonderful shot Vikram is looks so serene. x
fantastic composition, tone, and POV. looks like he’s rowing on a sheet of satin
