I live in Baltimore and in March traveled to Vietnam with my partner. After winding our way from the southern city of Ho Chi Minh to north Vietnam, we took the luxury Victoria train to the mountain town of Sapa, near the Chinese border. The elevation and configuration of the mountains and valleys meant that the scene changed constantly from warm intense sun, to a complete white out with fog that could be seen and felt rolling up the hillsides. This shot was taken on a 30-minute walk down to Cat Cat Village, just before this cliff side municipal building was enveloped in mist right before our eyes.
