White Lake and Virgin Hill are situated in Bac Binh, 45km south east of Phan Thiet, Binh Thuan province. The sand hill is called Virgin partly because the sand is white and still a secret to human, and partly because it looks like a sleeping naked girl. The lake, although lies in a desert-like area, is never empty, and the deepest lake bed is around 65m from the surface. It is said that there may be a path from the lake to the sea. However, if it were true, how the water is not salted is still a question.
This place is a popular attraction to tourists. Besides, married couples usually come here for their wedding album. That may be why the tree is called the love tree :D

Dear Hien, it is a really unique, atmosphereic, almost abstract landscape, a bit like a montage: lake, desertic dunes in the background, a dead tree and a strange shaped (real artwork) place to sit down and meditate. Many thanks for sharin, Jalab

You have achieved an attractive composition, with the big old tree as anchor and framing!
Lovely colour palette, first class definition and sharp fine details...
Good balance and a fine sense of depth!

This is amazing, almost unreal. Great composition, very smart use of that tree.
Thank you for the story.

A lovely tree, a simple shot but effective.

great framing of such a wondeful view.
The tree stands nicely at the right place.
Very well done!
