The Shadows of Mui Ne, Vietnam


I spent more time in Vietnam than any other country I visited in Southeast Asia because I found the country fascinating, photogenic and frustrating.

Let’s focus on the photogenic part.

Mui Ne is not only known for its amazing coastline, but also for its rich red sand dunes. The coastal charms of Mui Ne was a direct contrast to the motorbike filled concrete jungle of Saigon.

In Mui Ne I enjoyed great weather, great beaches and the photogenic sand dunes. You can read about how I captured this scene from this previous post Good Morning Vietnam!

I liked how the glow of the late afternoon light and the woman’s shadow came together in this photograph.

Stay tuned for more of my adventures in Southeast Asia.

Happy Travels!

The beach itself is yellow sand with a semi-fine grain. While the central stretch of the beach through to the northern end is poorer quality and dominated by the fishing industry (ie there's a fair amount of refuse, netting, dead fish and other fishing paraphernalia), the southern stretch is better suited to swimming, sun-baking and deck-chair reclining.
