Photographer's Note

In the middle of Hanoi is Hoan Kiem Lake, a center of public life of the city. People relax under the trees, sell goods, and, mainly in the early morning, do exercises. There are two temples on islands in the lake. This one, Den Ngoc Son or "Jade Mountain Temple", is accessible from shore via a bright red footbridge. The other temple, and some of the exercisers, are visible in this shot.

The temple is a popular place with both locals and tourists, so you have to be patient to get this sort of shot!
