Great emka 2009-02-18 3:34

Hi Way, beautiful evening shot. It seems so calm in this place, I like the view of the people catching fish here. I am surprised to see mekkong so blue. I remember it in chocolate colour. I can imagine your feeling visiting your olaces after such a long absence.

regards

Maggie

Default To emka: Dry season

Maggie,
Two reasons the water is so clear and blue, this is the end of dry season, in January there were no rains for at least 2 or 3 months, the water is not as muddy like in the rainy when it rain, it wash down all the soil and dirt. Another reason is here in this photo it's more clear because of the rocks, there are not soil particles in the rocky area of the river. This is where the Mekong splits up in many different smaller stream at the southern part of Laos and North Cambodia, it will merg back into one again down in Cambodia.

Way
