Dawn Exodus   East Coast, Zanzibar, Africa

A glorious sight sailing dhows drifting into the most sumptuous dawn light eventually formed a triangular shape not dissimilar to their sails.  The solid wooden outrigger boats silhouetted yet the sails were still translucent.  timing the shot so that none of the boats overlapped was vital to prevent loss of recognisable shape.  Selecting three boats ensured a comfortable and balanced composition.
