Water water everywhere!

Badly in need of a quick pre Christmas beach getaway I headed to Phan Thiet, four hours north of Saigon by road, for a three day break this week. A beach bungalow just 20 steps from the sand awaited, and I was excited. Unfortunately a typhoon off the coast of Vietnam decided to rain on my parade (pun fully intended) and it POURED rain for the ENTIRE duration of my stay.

Still, sometimes when the weather turns sour or even because of it, there are still beautiful photographs to be made. Below are a hand full of shots all made within a stones throw of my beach bungalow. Different looks in the same location thanks to the changing weather.

 20 degree's camera left a local fisherman replete with motorbike helmet (presumably in case he slipped off the rocks) heads home to cook his catch for dinner.
