Photographer's Note

Thankyou for the kind comments regarding my Chinese Fishing Nets at Cochin with the sun setting (actually on Vypeen Island). I explained in that post that we came across those lovely nets after a rather boring boat cruise around the container port.

This beach scene shows the more visited nets on the Fort Cochin Beach at daytime. These cantilevered nets traditionally are made of teak but low-availability of young teak has hampered the restoration project to replace the iron bars that have been used to mend them. Special permission is apparently required to fell young trees.
Five or six people are needed to operate a net at high tide.

These nets were right beside the extremely nice Brunton Boatyard hotel that we were staying at. The public beaches here were full of litter and plastic and no attempt has been made to clean them, although I read that a restoration project for the whole area is underway - I hope that is true.
