Award Shortlist   


Thank you for your comments on the first photos taken one afternoon near Duona/Dona a small village far away from the noise and tribulations of the Taiwanese crowded cities.

Duona/Dona is at the end of a road which winds its way through wonderful scenery. To go down to the rice paddies you must take a track, the extensive views are superb and the bird songs are enchanting. Two eagles flew past! Amazing sight!

The man in the photo never stopped working. He was planting rice. His gestures were precise and repetitive. When I got near him he said hello and gave me a friendly smile and started his work again.

(f7.5 1/80th sec zoom at 70mm spot metering)

Have a pleasant evening,
