Lotus ponds amidst lush green rice fields is a common sight here. At this time, the flowers are already in bloom and ready to be harvested. People passing through the town during the season get a bonus treat – the fragrance of lotus carried by the breeze. Photographer and nature lover Nguyen Minh Phuoc has compiled a collection called “Lotus scent in the countryside”.

“The petals of a lotus are like the pink cheeks of a woman,” Phuoc said. He did not mention the name of the woman in his photograph.
