I remember this morning well. I walked along the dirt road up from the village to the reservoir through the Lam Yai farms and forest. There was hardly a soul apart from the odd farmer, a couple of noisy dogs and me. Then I looked through the trees and saw this.
I love walking the farms, canal banks and villages in the early cool mornings of Northern Thailand between November and February. Nearly every day I find I can make a new picture of the same view. I am so lucky the countryside is like an art gallery. I processed this scene to look like an old 19th-century oil painting. I hope you like it.
Early morning walks in the forests of Northern Thailand are a photographer’s dream. The early light catches the feather grass as it plays in the rising sun.
I enjoy the sunrise more than sunset, maybe because there’s no-one around and the air is so clean and fresh. I chose to process this one using a painterly approach as it seemed to fit. Hope you like it.
