Cormorant Fisherman at Dawn
It was 4:30 am and we were quietly motoring down the Li River in our bamboo raft. In almost total darkness, we could see a few fishermen set up on the river, waving a single light source to attract the fish to the surface of the water. The outline of the Karst mountains was barely visible, and the mist and fog are rolling by. Day broke over the mountains and this cormorant fisherman was ready to start his day. Mystical light enhanced the mood on this magical morning. Li River, China. June 2016.
