Path To Enlightenment

Path To Enlightenment

This was one of those random temples I visited. I previously published the Buddha in see on the right. As I started to go through all the images I shot I saw this image and thought it was cool as well. I like how the path leads to the temple itself. The building on the left is a bell tower that you can ring. It looked to be undergoing some repairs so I never got up close to shoot it. The…

Just Lounging

Just Lounging

This was shot off of Jomtein Beach in Thailand. The sun was starting to set on the Gulf of Thailand and people were mostly gone for the day preparing for the evening ahead. It was mainly me and the people who rent out these chairs breaking them down for the evening. I got a few curious looks from vendors wondering why I was shooting their beach chairs but for the most part they ignored me and went about their business…

Smooth Waters

Smooth Waters

I spent a lot of time shooting beaches I discovered as I go through these images. In Thailand, unless you are in the middle of the country or up in the north you are surrounded by beaches. The beaches run from pristine to complete crap. Depends on the beach and if its public or private. Figuring I am not a beach guy I find it ironic that I spent the last 45 days living near beaches. This was a sunset…

Reflections of Sunset

Reflections of Sunset

This image was taken right after yesterday’s image from what I remember. I was on Wongnamat Beach and I had moved the camera a bit and reset to frame the rocks differently. Just moving a bit gives a similar view a whole new look. This image was created by merging in 9 different images. No idea why I shot 9 but I did and let the software do its thing. Just moved the sliders around until I got a look…

Distant Shores

Distant Shores

This was taken off of Wongnamat Beach in Naklua as the sun was starting to set over the Gulf of Thailand with the city in the distance. You can see Pattaya, Pranumnak, and Jomtein in the distance. I also liked how the water and the rocks played off each other. This was shot with my Olympus EM1 versus the Sony A7R which I use for most of my landscape stuff. Mainly because I am lazy and hate switching lenses and…

The Guardian

The Guardian

This was taken at Mini Siam which I still stand by the statement should be called Crap Siam. I removed the more egregious damage to the wall behind the statue but trust me, its crap. The statue itself is called a dvarapala or gate guardian. This was taken at the entrance to it makes sense that it would be there. I really wanted the statue to pop versus the rest of the image so I made sure to mask in a clarity…

Playing On The Beach

Playing On The Beach

I shot this on the beach one evening at sunset. I was hoping for a more spectacular sunset but the clouds had other ideas but I still stuck with it. This little spot of sand was popular with everyone. Lots of families would walk out to it and take a selfie. I just set up to the right of it and took the shots that came. Shooting at ISO 50 with an aperture stopped down to F22-F25 depending on the…

Shadows Of A Seawall

Shadows Of A Seawall

This is actually from the Sanctuary of Truth which sits out in a small peninsula in the Gulf of Thailand and is surrounded by a seawall. The structure you see the the shadows of looks more like a gatehouse so that boats can be launched safely as the water can be rough at times. I took this shot on top of the gatehouse type structure. There were stairs leading up so I figured why not. No idea if I was…

Stairway To The Gods

Stairway To The Gods

This is another shot from the Sanctuary of Truth here in Thailand. This is the back entrance stairs to gain access to the inside of the temple. I just liked how the stairs looked with the wood tones changing between the natural, the orange, and the green. You must remember that all this is hand carved using traditional tools and there are no nails holding it together. It’s all done with wood dowels. Enjoy!

Buddha In The Clouds

Buddha In The Clouds

Another visit to a small local temple here in Thailand. This one is a quick ride up the road from the condo I rented. I would provide names but to be honest, I am horrible with directions and I don’t really pay attention. I just drive until I see obvious temple gates and then pull in. Not all temples are the same. Each one has its own unique style to it. There are certain features that remain the same but as…
