On a Small Boat

On a Small Boat

Mekong Delta, Vietnam

This image was taken on a small tributary of the Mekong near the delta. We took this boat for about a 30-minute ride through the "mangrove" forest that brought us back to our bus. Somehow, I like this image; it shows the girl without her face showing although "Vietnam" is written all over her conical straw hat. I took several shots of her but this is my favorite showing the splashing water at the end of the paddle and the practically diagonal position of the paddle.

Very beautiful picture, especially the colors and lighting almost perfect. Wish that I brought my camera along when I was there few years ago.

Thank you! Six people in total, 4 passengers and 2 paddlers.

Nice photo. How many people were in that boat?
