Photographer's Note

Papar is 38 kilometres south of Kota Kinabalu. Its name means flat or open land, and the area is characterised by low lying coastal areas which extend inland towards the Crocker Range.. Traditionally this was good rice growing land and the flat open padi fields may have given it the name. There are also areas of tidal wetland that are home to mangrove trees and saltwater palm or nipah.

Sunset triggered lots of activity on Papar beach. Maybe someone can fill me in on what exactly these people were gathering, maybe some kind of shrimps?

This picture comes from my favourite sunset series, but for most shots I found it difficult to get a really good scan. This one comes close enough. The original (in WS) was shot in portrait format.
