Tam Coc is about 160 km south of Hanoi near Ninh Binh, & like Halong Bay, has extensive karst limestone scenery, like Guilin in China, or Phang Nga in south Thailand. It is often called 'Halong Bay on land'. Taken near the cave temple at Tam Coc. Polarized.

Great shot, Chris! The small houses are dwarfed by the huge rock! Colors, lighting and reflection are good to look at! Very nice POV as well! rgds.

Nice PoV that gives the hill a menacing character threatening these small houses, light seems very strong but you could save a bit of reflection.
Have a nice day,

The strong sunlight gives some vivid and interesting shadows on the limestone surface and displaying its form beautifully. I also love the netting in the foreground. It makes a good and pleasing division of the water area. WOnderful colours and clarity. Excellent shot! Syabas!! regards.
