Cormorant Fisherman

Cormorant Fisherman

Very happy to announce that one of our China images has won a Silver Medal in the OneEyeland Landscape 2018 competition, in the category ‘Rivers’. The photography was made during early morning hours on an overcast day. This fisherman was out on the Li River in the Guilin area in Guangxi Province, south east China. In the old days they used to fish with the help of their trained and captive cormorants. Nowadays there is not much fish left in the river due to all sorts of reasons: more modern fishing techniques and perhaps also pollution amongst others..
