On Ngapali beach there were no weddings, but something more natural - oxcarts. Early in the morning, just after sunrise they came with the fresh rice reeds that was used for fish drying on the sun. I loved this view and whenewhere I saw this cart coming, I ran with my camera. Here the man had quite unusual hat for Myanmar.

an unusual beach scene this and I love the way you have presented it. The light and textures and dead straight horizon give impact and make the whole image so fascinating.
Have a great weekend - regards Brian.

Quite an unusual hat, but a sensible one judging by the brightness of the sun here!
A lovely photograph in which I see that the oxen appear well fed too, not like ones we sometimes see which are very thin and underfed.
Lovely colours and lighting and excellent sharpness.

J'aime beaucoup cette scène journalière dans cette région du monde. Le cadrage est impeccable et les détails d'une belle netteté.

Morning beach scenery, with Oxcart riding along. Light and lomg shadows indicated that, and contrast of strong dailght on colors was notable already.
Nice taken photo, enjoy your weekend.

a very cultural photo for TE, just perfect!
hmm..oxcart or wedding? I'd go with the oxcart! :)
and yes, that is a funny looking hat, but i guess it does the job in blocking the hot sun on his face and back of the neck.
a cool photo, i like it alot, not something we see everyday

the lighting conditions for the photo were not in your favour but you managed it very well :)
In fact, I like this deep contrast light and the golden tint of the sand and oxen!
PS. Yes, I am back to TE and will try to remain as active as possible... at least till September!

Hello Malgorzata. A photo of the beautiful Myanmar. It reminds me of my stay there several years ago. The team of oxen is typical. Title, photo and text fit together perfectly. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Splendid composition, with a good framing and splendid colors.

Ah, I'm not the only one to post surrealistic shots of cows on the beach !
But also with the cart and the driver!
A good pleasant and funny one
have a nice WE, best regards

Hi dear Malgo
Sorry for my late replay.
Another fantastic Myanmar image shot!
Marvelous strong light effect!
The comparison with the background is very intresrting and attractive. Best framework shot indeed! The rider's body is very thin, I wonder---. Sharp and clear image as usual as your trademark.
Thanks for your sharing with good work and have a good weekend! Best regards,
Takero from rainy(regrettable) Tokyo

Extremely well presented and with bold contrasts and warm colors. Light management is really nice with the shadows. Looks like one of the oxen is sleeping there. Wonderful POV here Malgo, great job!!
TFS.......Your Friend from California......Buddy

Cet attelage de zébus est quand même plus esthétiques que les gros tracteurs ou camions que l'on voit sur nos plages! Une très jolie capture matinale.

simple capture from daily life
in a different world

una foto reportage ben realizzata che ben mostra l'uomo al lavoro aiutato dai suoi animali.

The rust red hides of the oxen contrast superbly againt the cyan hues of the bg sea. Good sharpness & well composed using the rulue of thirds. Excellent density & graphism, especially of the driver against the lighter sky. Tfs!

Very picturesque scene taken in a superb place. An everyday life document, well taken.

Hello Malgo - This is a fascinating look at a lifestyle so removed from my own. To me, a beach is a place for, mainly, relaxation and leisure. To others it is an easy route between locations and an alternative to bumpy tracks. Very attractive detail and lighting and certainly worth running for! have a good week ahead. Rosemary

niesamowity widok! Te woly wygladaja tak dziwnie az nierealistycznie jak z jakiegos filmu science fiction. W ogole scenka jak z odleglych czasow.
Swietnie uchwycone w niezwykle uroczej scenerii.
Super praca, pozdrowienia.

Fantastic and very origianl photo of this ox driven cart, lovely light and mood. It doesn't look like he is going anywhere! Whilst this is a great record photo of this scene I would have tried different pov-s for more pictorial effects.
Thanks for sharing

I am trying to catch up with TE after a week on holiday. I love the composition of your picture with this wonderful ox cart and the man in his green shirt. A lovely shot with an interesting note that explains the presence of this man. TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann
