The Friday Photo #55 – Temple on the rock, Halong Bay

Moored up at sunset during a two day cruise in Halong Bay, Vietnam, the warm breeze and great company bought a contented smile to my face.  This is the life.  As the light started to disappear I took the opportunity to snap a few last photos, including this one of a Buddhist temple perched high on a steep rocky outcrop in the middle of the bay.

The logistics of people building a temple up there defy belief, really.  Quite how they managed it was a topic of much discussion over a few beers for the rest of the night …
