Hauling in the horizon

Fishermen hard at work hauling in their nets in front of my house in Maracajau, Brazil. For many men, this is their main source of family food and they have very little cash money to spend.

As if trying to fish the God of Sea himself, great tension felt in the bright light !

On ressent tout l'espoir qu'il mettent en tirant ce filet presque dérisoire face à l'immensité de l'océan, et on espère pour eux que la pêche sera bonne...

The net must be filled with fishes if we judge by the effort that it have to carry the fishermen to return it on the sand. Beautiful backlight.

A hard working small group - I hope their net is heavy with food for them. Are they a happy lot, Michael?

The reflected light off the water, and the dark shadows on the sand make this a delightful shot.
