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 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.
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.
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.
