I love your TGIF shots and this is another awesome one!

And thanks for sharing the background story. Sad to hear of the suffering due to being trapped between the giants...

Thanks too! The South China Sea is the new Persian Gulf. It does create opportunities, if we can look past the huge risks. It helps that the US continues to do freedom of navigation journeys in these areas. "Keeps the balance" so to speak.

I actually tried to take photos of the fishermen as they came back to shore after their early morning "catch" but the weather recently has been uncooperative. Maybe next time.

From the coastal town of Santa Cruz, Zambales Province - this is in front of a massive territory being outrageously claimed by one of the biggest economic powers in Asia. Heartbreaking conversations with local fishermen is that they are harassed by military ships in fishing grounds they've sailed to the past 20 years. Meagre catch is what they're trying to get used to because another country is overfishing nearby. Sometimes, such beautiful sunset masks the day-to-day struggles of people in the community.
