Photographer's Note

A close up view of one of the most scenic and least known traditional floating market on Martapura River when the riverscape is painted in vivid colors. The activity starts early at about 0600 hrs and as the hour progresses, the hectic atmosphere becomes so cheerful when more boats gather.

Traditionally the activity lasts only for about two hours when the river quietens down as the empty boats leave and the crowd dwindles and finally everything is quiet again on the river till the next morning.

Totally a different way of life from Indonesia - better known as the Land Under the Rainbow, spanning three time zones with some 13000 islands and coloured by 350 ethnic groups......
