Evening view of fishing boat and small rocky islands in Halong Bay

An evening view shows a fishing boat and small rocky islands in Halong Bay. The golden light of the setting sun is reflected in the water.
A Vietnamese legend tells that the thrashing tail of a great dragon running from the mountains toward the sea chopped up the land, leaving only the current rocky islands visible above the water in Halong Bay.
