Smooth Farewell

Posted in General, Landscape, Travel at 10:00 pm by Warren Williams

The final dawn arose of my final day in the tropics of Southern Thailand.

What better way to start it off, at the Reggae bar on the sands of Loh Dalam Bay, sipping a smooth banana flavoured liqueur.

I was planning to do a couple of activities, including scuba diving, and wake-boarding, however I was nursing a nicely bruised toe, which was difficult to walk on. (thanks to that invisible rock on Maya Bay!)

A walk Eastward along Loh Dalam Bay, revealed the disturbing past of the devastating Boxing Day Tsunami, 2004. This side of the bay was worst affected, as two simultaneous waves crashed through the land, from both sides. Only 850 bodies were ever recovered, however up to 4000 could have been killed, leaving thousands missing.

It was evident of the continual rebuilding on the Northern bay of Loh Dalam. Glass, building material and clothing still litter the beach, which was surprising the locals haven’t cleaned up this beach!

The final sunset, never arrived. Rain has just passed through, so took out the tripod, for the beach shots, whilst a few tourists were enjoying their warm beach swim.

A lone kayaker, skips past Phi Phi Le, (The Beach movie, if you’ve already forgotten)

Monkey Beach, is directly under the middle peak on the right side mainland.

Whilst enjoying the final meal on the beach, was given a fire performance.

    Thanks Luke. You don’t need the tips, you’re well on your way. Just learn your own style, practice, and know both composition and technical aspects of photography.
