A misty Da Lat amid early winter days

In the early days in winter, the Da Lat mountain town and its surrounding areas are covered in dew, clouds blending with the golden hue of sunshine and Mexican sunflowers.


The photo set named “Da Lat on winter” was made by young photographer Tran Ngoc Anh (also known as Py Tran), who lives and works in Dalat. The author said that from the end of October every year to March next year is the best time to “hunt” for cloud, as this land enters the season of dry and cold winter.
