Landing a catch on Cherai Beach: A photo essay

This is  series of pictures of a fishing boat landing its catch on Cherai Beach, Kochi Kerala. The pictures were taken on my recent trip in February

Two fishermen at dawn, drawing in the lines 

Work over, they rest for a while 

Man's best friend awaits the landing of the catch 

They now head for the shore 

The boat has landed 
Pushing the boat on to the beach

Well above the tideline 

Ah: The catch !

What are those? Swordfish? 

Sorting the catch 

Not much reward for a quite strenuous work
