Thailand is more often than not associated with hot sunny holidays on busy beaches. But sometimes a storm changes the character and reveals another kind of beauty. As on this secluded Sichon bay in South Thailand. I created the photo as an oil painting for a more dramatic effect.
I was driving through Phangnga Province in Southern Thailand at dawn. Stopping for a break I grabbed my camera. This picture was the result.
I always loved this tree on Naiharn Beach. Then somebody with far more wisdom than I dismantled it. I never knew why but they must have been one of those other ….soles!
This sunset picture was captured last year and I decided to process as a silhouette in colour wash. I don’t know the story behind the abandoned development yet. But it covers a large area and has been derelict for more than five years and must have cost plenty. It is now being swallowed up by tropical vegetation and reminds of a modern day Angkor.
