Asia - Sri Lanka - Ceylon - The Pearl of the Indian Ocean - Emerald Isle - Southern Province - Weligama - Fishing town on southern coast along the Indian Ocean - Deserted Stilt Fisherman location - Traditional and unique way of fishing - native craft


This is an evening shot of a place regularly used by stilt fisherman during the day. I have returned to Sri Lanka in a hope to get some better shots of these stilt fisherman than last time. Unfortunately, to my big surprise, it has become huge business in South of Sri Lanka. Now days these fishermen just pose and you have to pay 10 USD (which is lot of money in Sri Lanka standard for just few minutes of posing, women tea pluckers earn between 2 - 4 USD a day for picking around 20kg of tea !! ) for a shot or two at each location !! Luckily normal fisherman on boats or fish markets are still happy to have their photos taken for free or a smile and thank you.
