This honestly is one of the views I get when I leave my building and ride the half mile or so to Pattaya Beach.
I have taken for granted I live in a beach town and fairly close to the Gulf of Thailand. Its just not my normal path on my daily wanderings. Living in a beach town doesn’t mean you actually go to the beach. You just know its there and if you are inclined then you can go to it. If not then you ignore it and go about your daily life.
I was riding with my gear gear shoved into my backpack because I had some other work to do and planned on shooting something completely different. When I hit the road I saw the sun setting over the Gulf of Thailand and raced down to the beach. Got lucky and found a spot to park the bike and jumped off. I didn’t want to waste time with setting up my full kit so grabbed my Canon S100 in my pocket and just took a few snaps. It’s why I carry it now because it’s small enough to go everywhere and has a decent sensor to what is needed.
Editing was just a quick crop and then a curves adjustment. I did a bit of dodging and burning and then called it done.
