I could lie and say this was taken in Thailand but it wasn’t. It was shot in Fort Myers, Florida. They look about the same, to be honest, and the weather matches. The real difference is better food in Thailand and a whole hell of a lot cheaper here. Enjoy
This was shot in Fort Myers Beach, USA. I wasn’t kidding when I said I had a huge backlog of photos! Enjoy.
This is another one from Sri Ratcha I took while baking slowly in the heat. They have a ton of tuktuk’s around the pier area. Where I live we don’t have them. Honestly, to be fair to the guy it was fairly early in the day and when these guys aren’t busy they tend to play on their phones. Enjoy! PS – Bonus points if you know where the title comes from.
This was taken at a temple on top of a mountain in Sri Ratcha, Thailand. Yes, it’s the same place where Sri Ratch sauce was named after. It’s about 40 minutes away from me by car. I didn’t see much of the place because it was soul burning hot that day and I was slowly melting. Enjoy.
This is what I see when I am at my local pub enjoying a cold beer. I just happened to have my D810 with me and snapped this of two beach umbrella operators closing down for the day. To be honest I doubt they gave the Gulf of Thailand a final look. Enjoy.
This is the head of the Reclining Buddha. I figured I had it might as well post it. Enjoy
Not the easiest place to shoot considering the lighting in there. You get a mix of natural light through the temple windows and artificial light. So you will never get an even finish on the Buddha. Enjoy.
Taken at Wat Phra Chetuphon (Wat Pho) or the Temple Of The Reclining Buddha if you are inclined in Bangkok. You can buy a cup full of fake coins for 20 Baht and then make an offering to the small pots set around the reclining Buddha. This was a local Thai who was visiting. It should be noted that Thais get in for free, if you are a foreigner it’s 200 Baht. Sadly, Thai drivers licenses don’t count for being…
If the weather is decent I’m usually gifted a spectacular sunset since I live on the Gulf of Thailand and my condo looks out over it. Being on the 12th floor of a 15 story condo pays off in this case so I took this shot. I have been leaning more and more on my Nikon D5500 for shots. It’s light, I have 3 lenses that cover every range and did I mention it’s light? Even compared to my mirrorless…
This is generally my morning view anymore. Monsoon season in Thailand means rain on the constant threat of it. It’s part of the life of living in the tropics. Also, these photos were shot minutes apart just one looking over the Gulf of Thailand and the other towards the mountain. Light shifts that badly. Enjoy
