Cochin Chinese Fishing Nets

By sawsengee  
The series of Cochin Cheena Vala (Chinese fishing nets) seen here catching the diminishing rays of the setting sun instead of fish. These nets were probably introduced by the Chinese exporers to India and are now a tourist sight as they are constructed with wood & vines anchored by huge boulders (with no metallic parts). Here are links to further explain this legacy:

A well composed capture in attractive evening light.
I would, however, remove the magenta cast.
