Harvest (potw #39)
I’ve just got back from two weeks in northern Vietnam, mostly spent in the hills in and around Sapa and Bac Ha in Lao Cai province, near the Chinese border. I have a stack of pictures to sort through and I haven’t worked out how I want to present them yet, but I thought I’d start by posting a couple of single pictures of the week. There’ll be a longer series or two of pictures in the near-ish future.
This shot was taken on a misty, murky afternoon in Cat Cat village, a short walk from Sapa. The rice harvest was pretty much over by the time I made it up into the hills, but these farmers, for whatever reason, were a little behind everyone else.

amazing photo and post. can’t wait for more info and photographs about your travel to vietnam.
This is absolutely beautiful. I am definitely so glad I’ve found your blog!
Stunning photo. Wonderful colours and composition and brilliant processing.
Beautiful! I did a motorbike road trip in the country’s northwest a month ago and the view was breath-taking. Posted a few landscape shots on my blog here http://wp.me/p14ofi-8O
I was in northern Vietnam this past summer and did not get to see anything like that! Did you stay with relatives or at a hotel?
I was quite lucky with this shot because, as I mentioned, the rice harvest was mostly over by the time I got to Sapa. I stayed in a hotel on this trip, but I rent a flat in Saigon.
Beautiful picture! I loved the colors.
I think this might be one of my favourites of yours. Beautiful.
Really lovely. Nice change of pace from street portrait work, and b&w. Ken
