Bai Tu Long Bay | Vietnam

Bai Tu Long-1

Just a simple image from Bai Tu Long Bay, in the Gulf of Tonkin in northern Vietnam, a little ways past the famed and fabled karst landscapes of Ha Long Bay. It’s quieter there, in Bai Tu Long, though not much different overall at all. Further away, maybe. Which is always nice in such a crowded world. From where we dropped anchor you could see large tankers sitting idle in the distant shipping lanes past the small rocks dotting the watery landscape. At night their lights would bleed through and brighten the shadowy limestone boulders pushing through the gulf. So that’s what happened here, in this photo.
