Before sunrise

Heading along Inle Lake on a small boat while its still dark and cold. I asked the boatman rowing quietly way behind these local fishermen while they were taking a moment to relax, just before sunrise, a calm start before getting back to their daily work. Photo taken during my memorable trip to picturesque Inle lake , which famous for its floating villages & gardens and the unique way of life of the local Intha people, with their living communities based entirely on the water.
