Pictures from around Vietnam focusing on landscapes and some close up shots of nature
Storm in Vung Tau
As the wind was approaching from the west, the sunlight was getting enveloped by the storm clouds. The seas were getting rough and I was sure the rain was going to be heavy. I couldn't help myself but sit at the edge of the churning sea for a while.
Ho May Park--Vung Tau
Ho May Park in Vung Tau has some of the best views of the city and sea in Vung Tau. Don't come here to expect a nature reserve. It is what it is. There are some beautiful landscapes. With some creative color selection I was able to make this image pop.
Vung Tau--June 2016
Before the rain poured down, the clouds were twisted and churning. This swirl of nature occurred late in the afternoon in June just as the rainy season was getting underway. Soon enough the rain would come down with incredible force, smearing the texture out of the clouds.
Elephant Leg Tree
An early morning nature walk on Big Mountain, Vung Tau.
The bark where the branches and trunk meet are creased just like any well aged creature.
The morning sun in Vung Tau quickly becomes uncomfortable by 9 AM.
Big Mountain is the best nature walk I have found so far thanks to the shade of trees like this.
