Land of Dreams

By dmhuynh72
You probably think it's a scene from Cornwall, well it's actually from Vietnam taken at around 5am this morning. Interestingly the pattern on the rocks is similar to that of giraffe skin.

Please let me know if is over saturated as I processed it on my old laptop. Saving up for a decent desktop at the moment and hopefully a Canon 5dmk2 as well.

Thank you for stopping by
and regards
