Lake Inle Fisherman
Lake Inle in the mountains of Shan State, central Burma is a truly astonishing place. The lake has entire villages set on stilts above the water scattered all over the lake, and entire communities and ways of life are centered around the water. Crops are grown in floating gardens, fabrics are produced in large wooden "factories" on stilts, and of course everywhere you go, there are fishermen.
I took this shot in the very last light of day before the sun dipped behind the mountains.
It occurs to me that most of the shots that I'm submitting from Burma seem to have gold as the strongest colour in them. They don't call it the Golden Land for nothing!
