Wish I Was Here

Wish I Was Here

This is a shot off of Wongnamat Beach in Naklua, Thailand. With the snow now falling for over 24 hours straight here on the East Coast and not due to stop till the very early hours of the morning. I am not a cold weather animal and I would much rather be sitting in the tropical climate of Thailand than sitting here watching the white stuff pile up. I’d go into the technical details of the image but I just like…

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…

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!

From Shore to Sky

From Shore to Sky

This is one from Wognamat Beach in Naklua, Thailand. The skies were threatening and I just liked how it works with the water and buildings. One of the interesting things I have discovered while shooting here in Thailand is that sand and tripods aren’t the best of friends. Tripods tend to sink it the sand which can cause the image to shift from frame to frame. Wognamat’s beach was better than Jomtien’s because it was course sand versus the finder…

Temple In The Jungle

Temple In The Jungle

Well, not really but you do have to walk down a treacherous set of stairs that are in a leafy canopy to get this view of the Sanctuary of Truth. Trust me, lugging a camera on a tripod down and up these stairs is miserable. I have no idea how long I have been coming to Thailand now. A good many years and this is my third trip to the temple. It’s been under construction the entire time. Since its…

After The Rain

After The Rain

This is the side soi (street) that gets you Wongamat Beach since most of the access is blocked by large condo buildings and hotels. I guess to keep the riffraff like me out who aren’t interested in spending a lot of money for an oceanside view. I’ll take the workman like soi I am staying on any day of the week. I like nodding to the fried rice vendor or the pad thai guy or the small little restaurant setup…

Gods From The Heavens

Gods From The Heavens

Today’s image was shot at the Sanctuary of Truth which is located in Naklua. I have fond memories of this place as it was the first ever location I shot RAW in many years ago. Up until that point I had been shooting jpeg and more or less in P Mode or Auto. Little did I know it was a sign of things to come. The building is all wood and all hand carved. There are no nails or glue used…

Alien Shores

Alien Shores

I guess these could be alien shores since I am not Thai and I am a legal alien in their country! Well, until my visa expires and I fly home. This is still Wongamat Beach in Thailand, just my creative version of it. This is what happens when I go to Stuck In Customs. I get the urge to do a HDR image. To be honest, I shoot all my shots for HDR anymore and a lot get blended into…

Bruised Beach Sky

Bruised Beach Sky

Further proof I am in Thailand (and didn’t’ forget to upload the image)! This was shot off Wongamat Beach in Thailand as the usual afternoon storms were starting to roll in over the Gulf of Thailand. The story behind this one was that I had another person with me as he wanted to take some shots too. Normally I work alone and when in Thailand I just ride my scooter to where I want to go but we hired a…
