Each year, when the Mekong delta is flooded, the local people collect thousands of lilies on long stems that have grown on water-covered rice fields. Photographer Trung Huy Pham recently captured the annual harvest in a series of bright pictures taken in Long An Jiang provinces in Vietnam.
Trung Huy Pham took pictures of farmers wearing traditional hats as they pick flowers. The lilies collected in this way are often used as decoration. Pink inflorescences spin in the water, forming winding silhouettes – real “dancing” paintings.
