Neck­lace in the Ocean

China Scenic - - Lens -

Stone weirs are a type of an­cient man-made fish­ing con­struc­tion. From the sky, the scale of these weirs is mas­sive and their shapes com­plex — like mys­te­ri­ous cal­lig­ra­phy etched into the sea by some enor­mous hand. The beau­ti­ful “neck­lace” in the photo is a stone weir of Penghu Is­lands. The heartshaped pen­dant is the “weir-room” for catch­ing fish, while the curv­ing string of the neck­lace is the stone dam used to pre­vent the fish from es­cap­ing.
