Tidal Farm­ing

NPhoto - - Light Box - Marsel van Oosten, Nether­lands

A farm worker rows out to in­spect the nets of a large crab farm in the sea near Xi­apu, in Fu­jian, China. Nikon D5, 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6, 1/250 sec, f/11, ISO800

N-Photo says: In Marsel’s de­cep­tively sim­ple im­age, the translu­cent colours make the nets ap­pear del­i­cate, per­haps echo­ing the pre­car­i­ous way of life here, while the farmer’s boat – per­fectly po­si­tioned be­tween the nets – gives the im­age bal­ance and a sense of scale.
