Lake of the Returned Sword

Posted today is a photograph of Lake of the Returned Sword.  I captured this photo by setting my camera on a retaining wall while walking around the lake on the way to dinner in the spring of 2009.
Lake of the Returned Sword is found in the center of Hanoi, Vietnam.  Though surrounded by streets filled with motorcycles, trucks, cars, and pedestrians, the lake is a place of singular calm.    
I posted a landscape version of this subject several years ago.

  1. Strange name! Made me think of the Lady of the Lake and King Arthur's sword

  2. It is a very pretty place...and there is a story!
