Sunrise at Ha Long Bay

Early morning after a wonderful evening aboard the paddle ship Emeraude, I opened our cabin door to see this beautiful sunrise over Ha Long Bay, Vietnam.

Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

Ha Long Bay is a truly mystical place off the East Coast of Northern Vietnam. I have twice visited this UNESCO site. Once staying overnight on the Paddle Cruiser Emeraude. The sunset and sunrise was amazing amongst the backdrop of these vast soaring limestone rocks. The picture shows one of the boat ladies selling merchandise to tourists. Painted in oils.
