Photographer's Note

Another shot taken on a walkabout:

Traditional canoes sitting on a late afternoon where they landed as the tide fell at a remote Oelaba beach, Rote island. The isolated mangrove trees on a long coastline also became something of an attraction to me, and the beach appeared to be overtaken by carpets of slimy yellowish algae which I found very interesting

Ndao Rote island got its name accidentally when a lost Portuguese sailor in the 16th century arrived on the island in search of fresh water and asked a farmer where he was. The surprised farmer, who could not
speak Portuguese, introduced himself, "Rote"

This least visited southernmost island of Indonesia lies only about 170 km away from Australia's Ashmore and Cartier Islands

Setting: 16 mm, 1/100 sec, F16, ISO Raw 200, 1636 hrs & Polarised
