Photographer's Note

Halong Bay, Vietnam...

According to the legend, during their war with the Chinese, God had sent a family of dragons to help the Vietnamese.

The jewels and jade spitted out by the dragons turned into a set of islands which formed a natural defence line against the offenders.

The area where the mother dragon has landed was called
Halong (Ha: Descending, Long: Dragon).

Halong Bay is famous for its thousands of limestone isles… They bear interesting names: Dragon Island, Kissing Cocks, Elephant...

Cropped, applied gradual toning & retouches, increased sharpness, saturation & shades.
