The two oldest original cormorant fisherman (brothers 78 and 83) who have become my good friends over the 8 years I have lived in Guilin, China. As a British guy, speaking Chinese really opens doors and possibilities I would not have otherwise. This location is on a secret creek by the Li River, in Guilin China. This was taken during a minor flood while guiding and leading a workshop for Guilin Photography Tour for http://www.guilinphotographytour.com when a small river can form. I love this location because it's the original fishing waters of the two brothers, away from houses, farms, and civilization. It's rare to be able to shoot this location, and although no sunset this evening, the blue hour was packed with mood.
This location is very difficult to get to, you'll get cuts and bruises and need to use all fours, so we like the call the Smeagol, as it reminds us of the way Smeagol crawls over rocks in the Lord of the Rings.
