This was taken about an hour north of Nghia Lo, Vietnam —itself about 200km northwest of Hanoi— during a drive towards the northern Vietnamese highlands and Sapa in October 2010. I remember seeing lots of terraced rice paddies that day. And some of the most beautiful countryside I’ve ever seen. Here’s a post from October 2010 with a few more photos from the area.
Today’s Pic du Jour, the 231st (!!!) straight, was taken on 20 October 2010. Click on the image to see the full uncropped version.
