Shankarpur is a virgin beach town located 14 km east of Digha in West Bengal. It is also a regular fishing harbor. The mornings are cool, when fishermen can be seen hauling their huge nets out of the sea. The morning sun reflecting on the sea waves in the east, and the local fishboats on the coast offer excellent photographic opportunities

Par une journée chaude comme aujourd'hui, un peu de glace peut calmer l'atmosphère. Ici, il y en a en quantité industrielle. Le noir et blanc donne un petit côté documentaire à l'ensemble.

I like your idea to capture this view, how amazing to see these huge blocks of ice placed Ike this. I know fishermen in Ireland use ice too, but I have never seen massive blocks like this, it always arrives crushed before it goes on the boats. Very interesting scene, and you conversion to black and white has brought a lovely sheen out in the blocks. Nicely done.
Have a great weekend
