Colours play an important role in Vietnam. Everywhere you go. Youll see colourful shops, houses ..etc and boats (see my photos of Cat Ba for more examples of boats).

Mui in Vietnamese means nose or peninsula. Ne means to take shelter. This name Mui Ne has been given to the village by fishermen as it was an ideal place to shelter their boats when there is a storm.

Hoping you will like the bright colours of the boats on the wonderful turquoise of the sea and blue sky (f10 1/100th sec zoom at 70mm).

The other version is a photo of coracles made of bamboo and palm The Welsh coracles are made of reeds, horsehair and waterproofed with tar.

Many thanks for your comments on my previous up-loads. Hoping this will meet with your appreciation.

Enjoy the sunny evening,

I like No 2 because of the coracle, but No 1 for the composition.

Just love the composition in V1 - the lines of the ropes to the foreground boats, the graceful curves of those boats top right, the splashes of colour.
