Elaine- from New Westminster, Canada

'Come... and I will make you fishers of men' :) sorry, this sort of thing just pops into a Christian's mind lol... strange practice to fish on a large scale while on the shore, hmmmm? *here fishy fishy* very nice shot, looks like a nice day to be out fishing...

@Elaine-: They fish for survival every day. They set large nets away from shore and later haul them in, hoping to get enough for the day's food. Thanks, Elaine.

Luke from Spokane Washington, United States

what a large net! i like the team effort here!

@Luke: Yes, they also share all the fish equally and take it home to their families. Thanks, Luke.

An excellent composition. That's a great border you used here.

I like the wavy net reflecting the wavy sea. Also the white sail on the right is a good counterbalance in the composition :)

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

This is a wonderful capture, Michael, of the activities outside 'your window'. I hope you are enjoying the best fresh fish in your life!
(I'd love to taste some.)

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thanks, Judy. Actually the fish these men catch is for their families. They rarely sell any of their catch.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

I watched the video, I chose to put it on my Google+ page, I even left a comment, though I'm not sure it was registered! If you can just sit on your veranda and make such a video, with that music...then you can make more videos...Let's say about the moods of sky and ocean....

@Japanalia: Thank you for the wonderful comment and the great idea for future videos. I definitely have plans for more. Cheers.
