Photographer's Note

Gone fishing? Not really. These are fishing stacks and nets. This photo was taken from Doljo beach at Panglao island in the Philippines. Fish is pretty common food in the Philippines with its around 7000 islands. At the markets you can find many and often very colorful species of fish.

Many times small fishing boats are used but sometimes you even see these older methods, the stacks near the shore with probably some fishtraps nearby or with nets as can be seen further in the distance.

As you can see the water is shallow for a long distance and very clear as well. Around Panglao some very good diving spots can be found and even whale watching is possible. Both I have not tried but hopefully will be able to do so in the future.
If you try to find Panglao on the map look for the Bohol province and just south of the main island.

In the background you can see the hills of Cebu Island which are about 25km away.
