Xiapu (霞浦)is located at the North East of Fujian province. It has a long coastal line of 404km, with a large portion of sea shore protected by mountains and rocks, making it perfect for fishers to establish since the past thousand years.
There are a lot of scenic spots in Xiapu.
The hills serve as a good spot for photographer to compose many of the picture. Together with the scenery, colourful low lying sand, history, culture, fisher farm and fisherman working scene.
This picture was taken on a high POV using a telephoto minimalist and high key approach.

À nouveau une magnifique photo; belle et épurée, subtile, d'une grande finesse dans tout ce que moi, personnellement, aime et estime. Un grand tableau qui me touche profondément par sa délicatesse, légèreté et en même temps, profondeur par la présence humaine.

wow I'm impressed. I love the idea, the composition and the PP work that borders the scene to graphic minimalism but that also stays anchored in reality. Congrats!

composizione molto originale che già dalla miniatura attira l'attenzione di chi guarda.
Eccellente l'aspetto minimalista interrotto dai colori delle reti dei pescatori e l'elaborazione raffinata in High Key.

Many pictures of Xiapu here, making it an attractive place to visit. I wonder if I'll make it that high up in Fujian province on our next trip to the region, the pictures sure make me want to. Lovely minimalism & a real tribute to these men at work. Great picture!

This is a great photo, the square cut is correct for this frame because the proportion of elements present in the scene recalls the format 1:1, good choice!
the position of the fishermen in the left lower part is a perfect choice for enjoying the background without distracting the rest of the frame

This is great! Minimalist composition with muted colours and interesting pattern.
Brilliant daily life shot, thanks for sharing.
