Inle Lake's Leg Rowers Photo Contest Finalist
Inle Lake's Leg Rowers
Inle Lake's Leg Rowers
Taken in Myanmar, Shan State , Inle Lake. People who born in Inle Lake live in the huts which are built on the water. They make the living by fishing and they are very special in rowing boats with their legs. I took this photo when four leg-rowers were on the way fishing. Taken with Canon 5D and 17-40mm f/4.

To The Judges

First, I am really glad my photos has been selected as a finalists.

About this photo, I took this photo in Shan State of Myanmar, INLE LAKE.

These people stays in the lake and they make a living by fishing and selling it to the markets.

I got this shot by a Great Great Great luck. By the time they were coming far away , I was setting up my camera waiting for them. As soon as they pass through I shout them "please stop " for a while and they stopped in the middle of the water and they were making me sick as they dont understand what I mean. So I requested them to row backward and row forward passing through my camera again and I took with Continous programme 5 frames per sec and got this very beautiful one :)
