In 2012 I traveled around southeast asia with friends Josh, Tyler and Jaz. Part of our travels lead us to the one of the worlds most beautiful places, Ha Long Bay – Vietnam. We booked an overnight boat trip to really explore the place which included all our meals, exploring caves and canoeing! This dream trip turned into a bit of a nightmare for myself as the 40 degrees heat took over and unfortunately my room was the only one without air conditioning! This photo was a result of waking up at 4am and not being able to bare the heat any longer so I went to the top of the boat and was rewarded with this gorgeous sunrise to photograph. As I photographed an eager vietnamese boat crossed the bay which really made the shot. When it is blown up to full size you can actually see the two men working on the boat!
