golden peacefulness on a sacred mountain

…finding peace in the silence… a golden moment… high atop a sacred mountain…Wat Phra What Doi Suthep.. Chiang Mai. The Kingdom of Thailand.

  1. Oh what beautiful pictures you take. It inspires me to show more shots that are just details. They are so evocative, and often more powerful of the whole big thing. Thank you.

      • I felt like that about southern Mozambique where the simplicity of life and the warmth of the people touched my core for months afterwards. My son is off to Thailand to teach soon, so perhaps the Land of Smiles will top the Bucket List before Vietnam and Cambodia. I’d love to know where to stay is you’re happy to share your secrets 🙂

      • isn’t travelling the best? ahhhh, I wish to be off on another adventure. Teaching in Thailand will be such a great experience for your son. Well, if you are in Chiang Mai look up The Secret Garden. The people that run it are so lovely, the food they cook is out of this world and I promise you won’t regret staying there. When we left they gave us presents! Holy smokes…. games for my kids, some local handicrafts for myself and daughter… the grounds are beautiful too. ahhhhh.

  2. Wow, these are stunning and so evocative….I’m utterly in love with the lotus petals floating over the golden steps….delicious light and composition. You’ve made me want to go back to Thailand immediately!
