A close-up of those impressive waterfalls in Vietnam: Ban Gioc. As you can see I don’t go for the “milky look” prefering to capture the power of the water.
The waterfalls are right on the border with China. There are some waterfalls on the Chinese side which are even more impressive as these (the Detian Waterfall in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region).

In February 1979 when China invaded Vietnam, the northern part of Vietnam was the theatre for some fierce fighting.
My driver, Hai, (on this trip) took part in this short war when he was a19 year old soldier.
He had no choice. He came from a poor family and at 18 he had to enroll in the Army. After a short training he was sent to liberate Cambodia from the Pol Pot regime and atrocities before being sent to Northern Vietnam to fight for his country. Many soldiers were local men so I met some of his friends who took part in this short conflict.
The area has become a place of Remembrance Many monuments for the fallen soldiers have been erected to commemorate their memory.

Like you, I prefer seeing the power of the water. You have achieved this beautifully in all three.
