Myanmar series: Inle Lake

Posted by : Helen : (is currently at home photographing in, Australia) on 19 February 2007 in Transportation and Portfolio.

The Intha boatmen of Inle Lake often row with one leg which not only allows them to rest their arms but leaves their arms free to steer their flat-bottomed boat whilst they lower their nets in and pull them out of the water.

How on earth do they avoid tipping right over?! It looks really hazy, is this the humidity or fires?

@Bronnie: It is a combination of mist and smoke.

This shot is very interesting, not to mention educational. Whoever came up with the idea of rowing like this was quite clever.
