Lotus Flower Gatherer

By Sandra Barrett ARPS

I came across this late afternoon scene on Lake Inle. The clouds and reeds seem to be one in the landscape with this woman situated in the colourful Lotus beds near to her home. She was harvesting the Lotus flowers and stems, which are combined with silk thread to make their special Silk-Lotus material. Tourists buy lots of cottage industry goods made from this material.
