The Edges of the Day on Inle Lake


a smoke break on the water

Inle Lake is a lake unlike any I have been to before.  I was there for three days in February and each morning I went out on a longtail canoe on the smooth water and explored the lake, looking to capture some of the stillness and calm that preceded the sun climbing over the hills that rise above the eastern shoreline.  Here are some of the images from those mornings on the lake with the fishermen.

We maneuvered our canoe around the fishermen to work with and into the light.  Using longer lenses, we kept far enough from the men that we were not affecting their fishing.   Through our guide, we were told that these gentlemen did not mind us photographing them, they just thought it was strange that we found them so interesting.  Seeing the world through the lens continues to be an amazing way to experience life.
