One of the things I like best about living in the city is leaving it every now and then to spend a few days in the country. A week in the central highlands around Dalat gave me the chance to breathe some clean air and try my hand at some landscape photography, neither of which I get to do very often. I took a couple of motorbike trips with one of the Dalat Easy Riders, Mr. Thanh (aka Joseph), who did a far better job of negotiating hairpin bends and avoiding oncoming trucks than I ever could have. As a passenger, I could concentrate on looking at one spectacular view after another. Impressive as those views were, the people we encountered in the villages, fields and markets were even more memorable. These pictures are taken from those two motorbike trips, and were taken in the area around Dalat, and on the road to Ho Lak (Lak lake).
