Ben Nom with "submerged land" gradually emerges in the dry season. Located on Highway 20 in Phu Cuong commune, Dinh Quan district, Dong Nai province, it is about 20km from Dau Giay intersection. This set of photos was recently taken by Nguyen Tan Tuan, a Ho Chi Minh City-based photographer, during algae season (July-September).

Fishing and other vessels are anchored next to each other across strips of land that have temporarily surfaced. The contrast between their brown and the lake’s green is striking.

Local fishermen say the alga grows strong and thick on sunny days.

The green algae stretches and blends with the brown color of the soil. The color of the algae changes depending on the intensity of the sunlight. When it rains, the color of the algae slowly fades away. Algae plays an important role in the ecosystem of Tri An Lake, serving as a source of food for aquatic species and biofuel.
