About this photo

Light cast over the rice terraces of Mu Cang Chai, Vietnam, causes the crop to change colour, from lilac to brown to emerald green, creating an otherworldly aerial view. Located in the Yen Bai province in northeastern Vietnam the rice terraces are best visited in September and October for harvesting season.
