Photographer's Note

Hello TE friends

This photograph is taken at coastal fishing village town called Sematan, at western tip of Sarawak, Borneo island. Wider view of the concrete jetty and fishing boats idling due to public holidays and weekend. The sea tide is rising up and the sandy beach on far end of islet is barely visible.

The clouds scattered and the last sunlight streaked across, thus you can see the boats and the trees on far left are all highlighted.

The boats facing outward towards the sea, in north direction. (The sky BG is not cropped to give vast space effect to this small town, but a bit of crop may help, later perhaps in WS.)

To me, I find the most unique feature of this seafront is the islet that is formed by sand bar deposits over the years, and the trees start growing to protect it from erosion and waves, now it becomes a permanent protection to the bay area). During very low tide, you can practically walk over the sand to it, it really looks like an island then. Some people think they can and want to swim across. Want to try your fitness?

I hope this photograph will attract you to come and visit, explore the traditional culture and life of local people. Or at least you have an idea of what it looks like in this part of Malaysia, where many different ethnic races mix and live together in harmony for past 50 years.

Thank you for viewing and visiting, any comments are welcome on the technicalities or anything else.

Cheers,
Bill
