Thank you all very much for your comments and votes for the photos of the hardworking fishermen . Here are more photos of Mui Ne at sunrise. My hotel was right next to the beach and I could hear the waves while falling asleep!

I decided to get up early in order to see the sunrise and was very surprised to see there were many people already on the beach. They were no holidaymakers but families pulling very large nets which would bring them food to eat and to sell.

They had been up well before dawn pulling for hours the long string/cable attached to the net which after hours of struggle would bring them their reward.

Over the next few days, Iíll post some pictures of these people. There will even be some close-up up on some faces and the fruits of the sea. So watch this space!

Thank you for your interest and support. All comments/critique/advice welcome.

Have a nice evening,

Thank you very much. V3 is th eone I like best but thought it would be better to present the photo in chronological order to show the sunlight progressing. JNC
