Photographer's Note

I saw on TE several Sweeping Monks themes, like a leitmotiv... As some of you seem to enjoy seeing people sweeping in the early morning, here is a special one. Ok, it's not a monk but at least he's sweeping the beach at sunrise :)

In resort islands, beaches are sweeped everyday to clean it up from seaweeds and plastic trashes...

I took this one on my last day in the maldives. I slept very little this night as I didn't want to miss this sight in the other side of the island (only 10 minutes walk). It was my only sunrise after many sunsets as the one I posted a few days ago.

And you know it's funny because, at sunsets, you can see people actually seeking for a good spot to enjoy the sight whereas for sunrise...you barely see tourists...you rather see sweeping men and that's it.

I posted a WS, which is in fact another version of the sweeping man a few seconds earlier. I finally decided I'll post this one where he is actually in action ;o)
