A photo capturing the marvelous landscape of Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in northern Vietnam, is among what Apple said are their favorite photos ever taken by iPhone 6 users across the globe.
The picture, which shows several boats peacefully docked on calm,blue water next to the bay’s typical karst mountains, was shot by Karla R. using an iPhone 6 camera and edited with mobile photography app VSCO Cam, Apple said on its World Gallery page.
Under the photo lies Apple’s tip to “see what’s possible with the world’s most popular camera.”
“Grouping complementary colors together can cast a hue over the whole photo. The blues of the boat and water mix with the greens of the rocks to paint the scene in a teal patina,” reads the tip.
Ha Long Bay, literally translated as descending dragon bay, is a popular travel destination in the northern Vietnamese province of Quang Ninh.
The bay features thousands of limestone karsts and isles of various sizes and shapes.
Ha Long Bay was first listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994 in recognition of its outstanding, universal aesthetic value. In 2000 the World Heritage Committee additionally recognized Ha Long Bay for its outstanding geological and geomorphologic value, and its World Heritage Listing was updated.
