I leave the highland for time being and now back at sea level in Central Vietnam:
Hoi An is one of my favourite towns not only due to the historical reasons, but the main one is to get up early in the morning and go to the busy fishing port by Thu Bon river and see the boats unload the catch of the night and prepare for another day at sea.
This similar scene and its hustle & bustle on and around the boats must have been repeated throughout the centuries for sure, everybody is doing something: selling, buying, waiting, getting off and on the boats. I simply love the atmosphere, the noise, the smell and the energy of this place and off course the endless photographic opportunity it offers.
Who needs a shop when you know where to get some fresh fish off the boats?
For me photography is discovering something new in what I look at or where I take my photos.
Happy viewing and thank for dropping by.

Hoi An was also one of my favourite towns in Vietnam. I love the light in this picture especially the way that it catches those wonderful conical hats. The colours are very rich and the whole image very delightful.
Kind Regards, Ann

mi piace molto la luce calda che illumina la scena che hai colto in una delle più belle regioni del mondo.
Sono passati pochi anni dalla tua ripresa ma essa appare ancora oggi attuale e colpisce per la particolare nitidezza e per i colori assai vivaci del paesaggio.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Great! Fantastic scene on the river, intersting people in their characteristic hats, and the warm light makes your photo atmospheric

Une image bien composée sous une très bonne lumière et j'apprécie cette image légèrement sous-exposée,cela donne du caractère à cette scène.

The colours and light look fresh, the day is fresh and so is the fish, although we don't actually see much of it. But it's enough to know the fish is here, and it's much more fun to watch the people and the human environment anyway. You have captured a fascinating activity and the beautiful colours of early morning. There is so much going on at a time of the day when I would normally probably not even have got out of bed.

The clarity of this image is amazing, I think your camera has better focus than my eyes in real life! A busy scene in the best way possible, filled with life and so much color, all of which is lit up so nicely under this angled sunlight. I like that one person makes eye contact with the lens too, a beautiful moment to capture.

Sujet fort bien présenté. Très belle lumière.
Scène de la vie quotidienne de qualité.

You're capturing well this fishing port by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle in which many fishermen are waiting on fishing boat and stand by selling or buying. It's also impressive in traditional conical hat that they wear on head. It seems to one of typical Vietnam's daily life in local city. And, it's effective for color layers of calm river because of the distance.
RhodieIke (11512) 2014-04-25 22:17
This scene looks busy where is the traffic control, he he.
Splendid Pov, on to this Vietnamese river scene.
Wonderful colours, the early sun is catching some of the hats just right.
Awesome, love it.

Belle scène du petit matin avec un bel effet de la lumière et des zones sombres, la présentation est belle, bien cadrer avec de la profondeur
jjcordier (73612) 2014-04-25 22:42
Belle photo traduisant bien l'atmosphère particulière de l'endroit et du moment avec une très belle lumière.
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-04-25 23:51
I like title for the photo which easily has two meanings. For the fishermen it is the fish they caught and will come back proudly home with, but for you it must be this superb quality picture. Congratulations! The scene is very interesting and also nicely composed with all the elements placed smartly in the frame. The warm light makes it so lovely and enriches the colors. The village on the bank with its palm trees and some traditional houses creates good focal point and frames the photo nicely.
Thanks for sharing and all the best

J'aime beaucoup cette scène de la vie quotidienne. Beaucoup d'animation sur la mer. J'aime le jeu de la lumière avec l'ombre dans cette composition.
eldancer1 (25536) 2014-04-26 6:45
This scene is so familiar and had live this kind of life as a young boy. I like the low angle of the light and the golden hue of the early morning sun. Your images are very well plan and executed with great care, I really enjoy viewing them. TFS

Wonderful daily life photograph!
Special regards to the saturated colors, management of difficult light and composition!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your week-end,
adramad (35577) 2014-04-26 7:25
Superb composition, with all this activity in the channel, which gives great strength and vitality to the image, charm and atmosphere is ideal, beautiful coastline with plenty of palm trees, I really like the warmth of the colors, I think of late afternoon.
Excellent brightness and very good focus.
Very good job. I like.
Enjoy the weekend.
marabu61 (7443) 2014-04-26 7:55
You are so right about just immersing yourself in the noise, smell and bustle of a place. It is so rewarding and provides us with so many superb photo opportunities indeed.
Charming scene of the daily life on this river in a very special and attractive light. As the saying goes, the early bird catches the worm.
have a great weekend
Corry (4508) 2014-04-26 13:36
La lumière matinale donne de belles couleurs à cette scène où il y a déjà beaucoup de monde près des quais. J'aime bien la présence de la végétation et du bateau bleu comme arrière plan. Bien fait.
jurek1951 (40949) 2014-04-26 23:53
a very lovely photo with attractive composition, superb lights and timing is excellent. Great catch,
shreya2000 (889) 2014-04-27 0:09
Very nice composed pic especially the golden rays are adding beauty to this pic. I like it.
macjake (52804) 2014-04-27 9:39
looking at this photo its so clear why a photographer would get up early in the morning to capture these scenes.
I'd be doing the same thing!
love the cultural hats, the boats, the activity, the busy nature of the scene and of course the light.
what more could you ask for in a photo!?
ourania (27020) 2014-04-28 11:05
this is a very lovely and interesting photo and a great illustration to your note. There are so many pictures within the picture, portraits, scenes, details, inviting graphic elements. It's a well arranged spontaneous capture of a busy place that's graced by the warm morning light. We are led into the scenery in a smooth and effective way, there's superb depth and excellent definition. Even though this is a busy market, the impression we get is quite tranquil. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
nikkitta (13450) 2014-04-28 15:39
Stunning clarity in this full of action and color market scene, quite agree, what best than a floating market for fresh fish
What I like the more are the fresh colors of the morning, in special those reflected on the conical hats
Two people are qite conciuos of your presense
rogerl (1544) 2014-04-29 6:08
Abmdsudi, I am continually amazed by the soft warm light that you achieve in your photos, and wish I could do the same. It is really lovely. It probably involves getting up very early in the morning, though. This is a great daily life shot, with almost nobody even noticing the camera (perhaps the person on the left in the middle distance?). It gives us a great sense of what their world is like. I particularly love the slightly softened ripples on the water as well as the light. Thanks.
mcmtanyel (10853) 2014-05-01 20:17
Both your catch and their catch of the day are wonderful. It looks like an excellent place to get fresh fish.
PS. I admire your determination to get to places for the sake of taking photos.
tatadalou (5641) 2014-05-05 11:25
Nice dailylife scene, all the fishermen are coming to sell their fishes under a beautiful sunrise light. We can see the effervescence around the quay, and almost smell the flavour of fresh fishes.
delpeoples (52729) 2014-05-08 16:38
I like it when you visit sea level :) and yo have captured one of your famous daily life scenes, whilst combining it with the beauty of the sea. I could not ask for more. You have caught the light and made it work for you like the professional you are. This is also a very beautiful moment, where the good humour and hard life of the fishermen are depicted so cleverly. Going to fishermen like this and buying my seafood straight from the boat is amongst my favourite things to do when on holiday. The food is fresh and cheap and the conversation is wonderful. I hope you made the most of this golden opportunity. I be you did!
Warmest wishes and thanks for sharing
