A remote village on a small island of Nusa Tenggara province in Indonesia is a unique place of the world, where still remains a traditional way of whale hunt, specifically sperm whales. Men chase a whale in small open boats and the whale embedded by the harpoon attempts to flee and drags the boats at speed of up to 35km/h. When it is exhausted, a successful hunt will be finished.

a very controversial posting.
good colours, poor clarity and detail, very grainy, and not my subject matter.
However as a posting about life and the struggles of many people around the world have to go through and the risks they take to get food on the table, i can understand the posting.
