The crew of a 9 Squadron RAAF helicopter (not pictured) find a rare moment of beauty during the Vietnam War. In these coastal waters of the South China Sea, a funnel opening in a cumulus cloud feature allows a shaft of sunlight to create a spotlight illuminating the water off Cap Saint Jacques Peninsula late one afternoon. A portion of the South Vietnamese coast is visible in the lower right hand corner. Below the clouds, several ships also appear in the background.
