Dongjiang again (再戰東江)

Not having caught the famed sunrise at the Dongjaing (East River)( 東江) the first day, our tour guide decided to give us another try the following morning. This time we had to get up 15 minutes earlier than the previous day because we would be going to two different spots.

The fisherman brought a powerful torch. 


It turned the canopy into a floating lantern.



and the whole boat into a torchlight in the dark.


This time, the fog was less thick and we got rather more details.



the images got better

 
But with nature, you can never tell: the fog is thickening again.


Soon we were back to the condition the previous day.  


Everything turned misty again. 


When it got brighter, we began to have some ripples. 



But the fog insisted on getting its way. According to our guide, the band of morning mist would stretch some  5-10 miles during May and Octobers every year.




The sun began to emerge.




the images on the surface of the water got clearer.

We got a bit of the sun's reflection in the water


But because of the mist, it was still rather blurry.


As on the previous day, upon sunrise, the fisherman started his net throwing.


Because of the haze, everything took on a yellow color


But at least we got some sun in the water around the boat.



Two bright patches around the boat




There, a net high in the air


 
Believe or not, the net thrower was our tour guide! Not a bad throw at all!

An almost perfect circle.

As the fog was thickening, we were very disappointed.

Not much could be seen: no background at all!



Still it was nice to see the belt of mist which completely obscured the foothills



We were taken to another small island.
 

The mist had cleared a bit.


There was a young couple on the boat.


The fisherman demonstrated his net throwing skill.



We got two nets, two men: one on the boat, the other in the water!



To add more fun, our tour leader started to throw some water into the air.

A spider web
.

and an inverted basket!

man in the net!

a jelly fish? 


Two circles, one above, one below



Our tour leader was obviously having a good time throwing water



Too fun to stop.


Why not? What's wrong with having a bit of fun whilst working!
