Foggy

The sun rising is hidden from view. It’s not often foggy in Rawai but this was one of those unusual days when the tide was out and the wind brought pollution from Sumatra where the forests was burning.

Fire in the Sky

This was truly a dramatic event which produced a kaleidoscope of colours until darkness enveloped us. Thailand produces many spectacular sunsets but not all year round.

Despite the annual polluted atmosphere between December and April the countryside in Northern Thailand the landscape photographer can gorge himself on the natural beauty of the region.

I didn’t do very much on News Years eve but I did manage to capture the spectacular sunset with intentional camera movement. I hope you enjoy it and wish you all a wonderful 2016.

Wild Flowers

I’ve been walking at dawn in the hill forest areas North of Chiang Mai recently. The scenery is spectacular at this time of year and you get a different show every morning. Sometimes cloudy and dramatic. Sometimes misty and ethereal. Sometimes bright and dazzling. Sometimes a mixture of everything. The monsoon rains have been gone a while so the wild flowers are dying back. But here are a couple of gorgeous late bloomers I woke up yesterday.
