. . sunrise.


Before heading to the floating market for yesterday's post, it was a pre-6a.m. visit to Don Hoi Lot in search of sunrise . . and we found one.


Because of the geography, (an inverted "u", with Bangkok at the apex), Don Hoi Lot (ดอนหอยหลอด) is the nearest coastal place to Bangkok to shoot a sunrise across the sea. It is a sandbar to the west of Bangkok, famous for its Razor Clam shells and highly popular for Thai, but rarely foreign, tourists - although not at this time of the morning.


It was very misty, so we did not get to catch the birth of the sun, instead, the sun's rays reflected off higher clouds, and the first light appeared high above our heads and not at the horizon - but like all sunrises, it was glorious.
