Image of The Week: New Caledonia – Net Casting Fisherman

This image was taken in New Caledonia, and is of a local man trying to catch some fish on the lagoon. The method is called net casting, and is a tried and tested apparatus of catching fish that are left on the reef at low tide. I followed him with my camera as he stalked his waiting catch for quite some time. He continually cast and retracted his net, and it took quite a few shots to capture this image, as the net would move so fast when thrown, and the light at dusk made it hard to see.

    Hey Ciki, Thanks for that. It was getting dark and hard to focus for this shot.

     Hey Andi, I really enjoyed New Caledonia as well. I had no real expectations on arrival, and sometimes that’s the best way to travel.
