Five women stand in shallow water collecting bright pink and white water lilies as their boats drift nearby. They spread the long plants out in a circle around themselves and let them float on the surface as they harvested them.



The white water lilies, locally known as 'ghost flowers', only bloom after the sun sets - meaning the workers have to rush to pick the flowers in time. Amateur photographer Diem Ngoc pictured the harvest in Long An Province, Vietnam.
