Negombo is a lively town 30 km north of Colombo. It has an extended beach. Parts of that beach are boundering the many beach hotels that you can find here but the beach has a non-touristic and very local atmosphere because of the many catamarans and fishing ships that use this beach as their home base.

A very attractive daily life image with a lovely atmosphere to it. The sails stand out beautifully against the clear sky and make an interesting focal point for the image. The image is well lit and has good colours and sharpness.

Hello Gerrit - We spent a few days in Negombo a couple of years ago and you have captured a scene that brings back memories of walks along the beach. We stayed quite a way north of the town and fishing boats and local life were very much part of our experience there. TFS this DL shot. All I need to take me right back there is the sound of he black crows! Nice shot. Best regards Rosemary

Prachtige strand scene met de bolle zeilen.
Ook al is de hemel wat grijs de andere kleuren komen mooi tot hun recht.
Gans de foto is uit het leven gegrepen, dat maakt hem zo mooi.
Mooi foto werk, bedankt.

A great capture, and as you say it shows the more authentic side of the shore life. The catamarans with their amazing sails are wonderful! A nice touch also with the two young lovers strolling towards us. Lovely, warm regards,

Dag best Gerrit,
I like the excellent ballance of this composition with the two sympatic young lovers well off-centred in the FG. The many various details well collected show well the athmospher of the place.

I like the repetition of the billowing sails in the wind along the foreshore. Good sharpness & the people along the beach add scale & context. The line of coconut palms makes a nice change from the usual high rise hotels at resorts. Tfs!

This your photo from Negombo' 2011 looks like my own images from 2014. It brings me back to Sri Lanka again. Well seen, fine details of the beach life.
