Trying to keep warm in Thailand

I was starting to get cold after seeing so many winter photos, so I decided that we all could use some warmth these days.


I made this shot during my South East Asia travels. This shot was made in Thailand on the island of Ko Samet.

Koh Samed is one of the Eastern Seaboard Islands of Thailand. It is located in the Gulf of Thailand it’s approximately 220 kilometers (140 mi) southeast of Bangkok. Ko Samet is the largest and westernmost of a cluster of islands not far from the coast.

The island derives its name from the cajeput tree found throughout the island, as the Thai language word for cajeput is samet. In the past, this island has also been referred to by its colloquial name, Ko Kaew Phitsadan.



1/160 exposure


ISO 100

70 mm


I focused on the person to get a sharp silhouette and set the aperture on f/8.0 to get as much details on the fire as possible. The longer I look at the fire the more things I’ am starting to see.


So let you imagination run wild.
