At what time can we take good photos on the Halong beach?

Tourists in Vietnam travel will fall in love with the beauty of Halong Bay - A surprising beauty captivating all the hearts. When the last sunlight of a day light up through rocky mountains, Ha Long flashes up its surprisingly pretty. The beautiful yellow sunlight does not spread like the summer sun, but  playing hide and seek, slowly spreading colors on the waves, on the hulls and cliffs as if gilding on them.

The mid-day

Well you can try shooting during the mid-day as the water will be bright and vivid , but since the sun is overhead the light is very harsh it will produce dark shadows. Portraits won’t come out that well in this light but experimenting with various lighting conditions might yield amazing unexpected results.
