Travel Photo: Sunset over Halong Bay

Halong Bay is one location that ensures your jaw drops when you see it in photographs. But, it is only when you travel there that you realize how difficult it is to get the right weather as the weather here is so unpredictable. One day, it will be nice, clear, bright and sunny and the other day it will be all misty and grey.

Sunset over Halong Bay, Vietnam
Thankfully, for me, it was one of those days when the evening cleared up leading to a great sunset over the bay. I got to see this stunning view from on top of Cannon Fort on Cat Ba Island. I really like the moored boats in the bay as they add variety to the mighty mountains in the background. Cannon Fort is one of those places where you can get mind blowing views of the Halong bay from at least 3 different directions.
