Awaiting Sunrise in Phu Chi Fa

In the small town of Phu Chi Fa ("mountain pointing to the sky") in northern Thailand, every morning tourists flock to the top of the hill to watch the ”sea fog" sunrise over the jungles of Laos. This photo shows the rows of tents set up for the night by the tourists and locals alike, as they all eagerly awake the morning's show.
