On the Li River near Xingping in China, Cormorant fishermen work the waterways before dawn amidst the spectacular limestone towers of the Karst landscape. The birds are trained to fetch fish from the inky depths but not swallow them. The fisherman accepts the fish from the birds who dive back for more. Here, still before dawn, the fisherman and his birds head for home.

Sahara Express © Rafael Gutiérrez Garitano, Spain, 1st place, Spain National Award
Young Mohammed Salam -in the foreground- travels regularly on iron ore hoppers through the Mauritanian Sahara, from the open-pit hematite mine centre of Zouérat, to the commercial port of Nouadhibou. The journey is precarious and exhausting, but free transportation of goods provide him and his colleagues with a way to make a living. The so called "Sahara Express" was completed in 1963, three years after Mauritania's independence as a french colony, and it is considered one of the longest trains in the world. Exceeding 2.5 km long, it runs daily almost 700 Km from the deep desert to the Atlantic coast and it takes about 17 hours. The 7.5 million tonnes of iron ore it transports every year in more than 200 freight cars, account for almost 50% of total exports, so it is vital for the Mauritanian economy, which has one of the lowest GDP rates of Africa.
