Photographer's Note

Day 4
When we arrived at Nong Khiaw we said goodbye to the “Wonderbus” and more importantly our intrepid driver. We dropped off our bags and rushed down to the bridge over Nam Ou, where we were told there would be a stunning sunset. We were too late to catch the sunset, but there was still some attractive colour in the sky and at any time of day the scene is picturesque. Notice how the river bank is cultivated; this is a common practice in riverside villages. When the river rises in the wet season, deposits on the land make it very fertile. You can see at the bottom of the photo where we were to board the boats to take us to Luang Prabang the next morning.
To take the photo I used the bridge for support and set the 2 second timer to eliminate movement when pressing the shutter.
