Photographer's Note

Continuation to my previous posting from same location

Observing daily activity of these outrigger canoes is lifetime experience for me. These 'spiders' are normally sit beached above the high tide line during the day. As it gets dark the indigenous 'Sasak' fishermen would bring their motors, nets, and kerosene lamps to the canoes and venture out to havest the midnight black ocean waters. Watching these 'spiders' returning with the catch ashore at daybreak is a truly colorful and rewarding experience. The best vantage point for a fantastic view is along the hilly coastal road north of Senggigi beach. As the morning light gets brighter, the open deep blue ocean is clearly visible dotted with vibrant colors, the sails of these returning outrigger canoes. The vividness of these colors are more evident as they get nearer and eventually beached ashore as we are presented with colorful panorama. The task is accomplished temporarily for these 'Sasak' and time to have a good break till the next nightfall again.

Shooting location: Pamenang, West Lombok Island overlooking Straits of Lombok. Those islands on the horizon are the famous diving spots namely from left Gili Meno island and Gili Air island. Picture is polarised and blue color is natural not PShopped.
