Sunset, off Labuan Bajo, Flores

It was promising to be a bit of a disaster. Our speedboat had engine failure on one of its two outboard motors. Then it ran out of fuel running on one motor. We were stuck in the middle of the sea and the sun was setting quickly. Then, seemingly out of nowhere along comes this fisherman in his boat who towed us to a nearby sand spit and then took us to harbour when the Keystone Cops still couldn’t fix our boat. He also lent a great perspective element to th composition of the photograph.
