In her best togs and a life of toil at the terrace rice fields in a slight misty mountainous Sapa - 1500m asl. It was a cool morning that day and this Black Hmong farmer was probably looked so surprise when a camera was pointed at her....

The Black Hmong hill tribe can be identified by their indigo dress and long belts worn several times around their waists. Wrap their legs from ankle to knee, in black velvet which is held in place by a colourful band, embellished with embroidery.
