Halong Bay, by Ryszard Wierzbicki

The picture was taken in April 2014 in the famous Halong Bay area in Vietnam. I was always attracted to see this Wonder of the World, so I took a chance to organize a romantic trip with my girlfriend and fulfill the wish. The view on this picture was taken from the level of a cave entrance at one of the bay’s islands.
