Photographer's Note

Another dawn view from the balcony of the Queen Hotel in Sapa, an old French colonial hilltown in north west Vietnam, close to the Chinese border. The distortion is a result of the 28 mm lens. The central buildings are perpendicular.

Taken about 5.30 am to 6 am, before the sun had risen, so the fg is still in darkness, even though the higher peaks are in sunlight. Sapa is about 5,500 feet above sealevel, & Mt Fansipan on the left is over 9,000 feet high.
