Every morning the fishermen come in with their boats full of fish and offload to the market area where they are sold there and then. The men line up with buckets to take the fish off the boats. Being an island fish is a big part of the diet here.

Hello Wanda, fascinating experience to observe the fishermen coming back from fishing. In Myannmar, i preferred it to sunbathing on the paradise beach. splendid composition.
Warm regrads Malgo

A fabulous photo with lots of colourful human detail to explore in the foreground. Each person is engaged in some type of activity. The background detail is supportive of the foreground composition.

The early morning light has a wonderful brightness but is still not strong enough to kill the colours. This is a lively photo, to say the least. There are so many people around that I wonder if even a good catch was enough for all of them to get a share. On Zanzibar I had fish for almost every meal. I have rarely enjoyed it fresher.

Colorful and plenty of action scene of the fishers with the morning light, like this kind of local scenes, as markets where you can watch local food and customs
Regards and well done

That's subtle golden light at its best quality - just awaiting for an early riser. Love the framing and compo of this shot of a lively morning, hive of activity at this busy fishery port, indeed an invigorating way to enjoy the great moment here. People and vivid colors are really attractive - being the most essential elements that bring this image to life and contrast to blue is stunning too. Sight, sound and smell, what a delight! My congrats

Hi Wanda - A colourful capture of the hustle and bustle of market activity as the fishing boats bring in the catch. Although this is a static image it retails the feeling of frenzied activity. Warm regards Rosemary

i love the hustle n bustle in the shot with great energy.love the light and the composition.the island in the depth makes this shot even more interesting.

An interesting note and a very fine picture to accompany it!
The hoardes of fishermen and their helpers here make a delightful scene with every single person actively doing something to help bring the catch ashore - unlike in western cultures where one person would be doing the work and the rest would simply be watching him/her!
A wonderfully colourful scene with good light, perfect composition and exquisite details and sharpness.

Hi dear Wanda
Great daily life image full of their life. Strong sun light makes great in the best framework.
All the best and have a good day! Takero from TOKYO

A scene that is without a doubt timeless, both in its history as well as in the depiction you have made of it.
I like the impression of chaos that is representative of the place. A nice detail is that man in the water with its bucket, illustrating your description. Good morning light that dramatizes the contrasts and makes the colours very vibrant.
Well done partner!

its always a pleasure to see you and Andre posting photos on TE, we just wish you'd post more often :)
hard to pick and choose 1 photo, but i ended up with this one because i enjoyed seeing all the activity, and the culture that surrounds it.
it seems as if nobody is even looking or noticing you!
great post for TE

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the many fishing boats in return, many fishermen on boat and residents accepting fishes with buskets. It is impressed a feeling of a life. And, it's also impressed for their colorful T-shirts.
