    Thanks Dave. Best time of the year to visit Thailand is from December to February, other months are probably a bit too hot or/and too rainy.

    Friendly people and beautiful places, wonderful beaches, plenty of photo opportunities, you'll never get bored here. Hope one day you can make it.

    Jorge,
    Great shots. You have done justice to the colors of Thailand. I love the country and the people and the food.

    Hi Arif,

    I visited your "photographic journeys". Very good photos and effects (Orton I guess). Thank you for the kind comments.
     
  10. Jorge,
    Given the name I assume that you are portuguese... anyway, let me say it in both languages: your work is fabulous! - o seu trabalho é fabuloso!

    I hope I can visit Thailand one day. It is the kind of place that is obviously full of photographic ops.

    Again, excellent work!
    Best Regards

  12. Beautiful images. I was in Thailand and Vietnam while serving in the military in 1967-68. They are beautiful countries. The colors are spectactular.

    Olá Rui,

    You're absolutely right, I'm portuguese and presently I live in Thailand. As you say, it is a place full of photographic opportunities, also I would say a "must-see" place. In case you can make it (to visit Thailand), let me know and I will provide all the info in case you need, o.k.?
    Many thanks for your kind comments.

    Thank you Paul. I was very worried about getting my camera wet but even using 70-300mm I couldn't avoid it and it took some hits and lots of dirty but didn't cause any problems. Hope it's o.k to post few pics more just to show how things went mad...
