Très jolie vue sur ce carrelet.
Picturit: We climbed the bell tower of the church and had a great view over the lagune.

A brilliant image, Astrid!

This style of fishing is popular in SE Asia.
Picturit: I know, that is why I had to capture this.. what a great way of fishing, lower the thing, grab a beer and wait HA...
Beautiful shot, Astrid! Interesting way to fish...
Picturit: I thought so too, thank you, Elizabeth.
It's one of the sites from the bell tower that I'll never forget from there, Astrid. Your shot of it came out GREAT!
Picturit: I am very pleased how this turned out. We had a great view from that tower...
Thank you, Ginnie.

Oh, this is a wonderful image I didn't see!
Picturit: This shot was taken from the bell tower and it is at full length of my camera-lens. We had a wonderful view from the tower.
Thank you, Philine.

They might catch anything in this Astrid, fish, birds, Chadair..
Picturit: smile Oh absolutely, I think it makes a great safety-net to catch the pilots that abandon the planes... wink

Do let's, Astrid - I bet you would like to try it
Picturit: Don't you love it, just lower the net grab a beer and wait grin...
A style of fishing suited to retired crane drivers
Picturit: I would have loved to see this being operated and look at the catch later on.

Once again, for me, the brilliance of the photograph is eclipsed by the brilliance of your name, sinking slowly in the briney.
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Chad. When I cannot blend in my name I don't want it to be too obvious so I try to make it at 'invisible' as possible.

The fishes and the deep blue sea - I like your composition.
Picturit: Thank you, Louis. we had a great view over the lagune from the bell tower. We were lucky with the weather too.
A newly mechanized, old fashioned kind of fishing.
Picturit: They made it into a science... I loved it when I saw this..
I have a feeling I've seen a documentary about people who fish in this way.
Picturit: I think that might be very interesting. I love the way they invented this gadget.
Thats unusual, Astrid, nice shot.
Picturit: Thank you, Frank. We had a great view from the bell tower.
(Have a good night smile )

Picturit: we climbed the bell tower and had a grand view. Don't you love this kind of fishing... just lower the net and grab a beer smile

Très joli site
Picturit: We were so lucky with the view over the lagune.
I really love the "flow" of this image...perhaps I can't explain it with words...but I think it's the curves that make is so calming to my eye. And of course love how you did your name!
Picturit: I know what you mean. We climbed the bel tower and the weather was amazing and the blue of the lagune and the view, everything. we loved this place.
