“Fishing Nets in the Wind” was taken in a county in southern China, people harvest seaweed or make a living as fishermen. This is a photo showing fishing nets flying in the wind, and a fisherman rowing upstream in a river. I was waiting for the wind to blow up the fishing nets. It was a long wait because I wanted the nets to be balanced in form and composition. I finally caught a shot where the nets look good, and the fisherman is perfectly positioned for a nice composition.
