Steep, Vietnam

It appears to be recently planted corn that is growing on this steep hillside. There are actually six people working on the mountainside field pictured here. In this made-to-post, low-res jpeg, they show up as little more than fuzzy specs. Above the left side of the house and a bit above the bottom of the stand of trees that extends towards the middle of the photo, there is a tiny red speck. That is the shirt of a farmer working in the field.

Alpine Village, Northern Vietnam

This was taken from an overlook on a rugged mountain road running along Vietnam’s border with China, probably in Cao Bằng province.

The mountainous north of Vietnam is a land of spectacular, almost magical, scenery. Now back home, I am just beginning to look through a pile of images from the 10 day trip through those mountains. More to come.
