Tuen Mun, Hong Kong view map

The rhythmic beating of the drums and
the violent splashing unleashed by powerful paddles,
they are all the lure of dragon boat racing.

Another fantastic action shot, it must be a great experience to see and hear what happens on such dragon boat rasing, and it must be a great plesure to shot! But I wonder from which place you shot, I could not belief when you was shooting from a boat. Vote, Rosemarie :o)
