16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The circle of life and death

Life and death are happening here at the mangrove forest of Ru Cha, a protection forest located along Tam Giang lagoon. During this time of the year,some mangrove forests of Ru Cha will change the color from green to grey white when the trees lose all of their leaves,some of them could be dead but the rest will continue popping up the new buds to create the new life for the forest. Life and death could be opposite,but they also connect to each other to become a circle of life of the nature here.
