Chiang Rai Sky

Recommended Posts

Villagefarang,

Very nice pictures and a great picture of your house. What type of grass do you have growing there and how much land do you keep groomed like that?

I've never seen Skies like that around these parts, but I've usually got my eyes down watching out for dogs. must have got himself a new Filter or something !?

Brilliant pics, you must have good camera. Missing Chaing Rai more than ever now.

Sorry to disappoint but I don’t have the camera you might expect nor the camera that I might like to have. I use a little pocket camera from Canon, the S90. It is easy to slip into a pocket and does not get in the way when out on the mountain bike or motorcycle. I do shoot in RAW but have no fancy lenses or filters. Aperture helps me makeup for the shortcomings of my camera.

Perhaps some people trudge through life, head down picking their way through the muck and carnage that lays at their feet, but I prefer to look up and feast my eyes and soul upon the wonders of nature that surround us everyday. It is more about focus and perspective for me.wink.pngbiggrin.png

Villagefarang,

We have two main types of grass, a wide blade on the open flat area and a thinner blade grass on the slopes. I am not certain of the names nor the total area but it is probably less the one rai that is covered in grass. We do employ a neighbor as our gardener. She gets credit for keeping our garden looking so nice.smile.png

Stunning photos, villagefarang.

Makes me wish I was there right now.

Thanks for the kind words FC. I have many more photos on Google+ and you are of course welcome to go have a look.

without filters they are indeed beautiful photo's . apologies for doubting your Camera skills but I did spot what I thought was the 'aurora borealis' in one of the photo's which led me in that direction. unsure.png Muck and carnage ; I think most humans call it Life, I seem to have created quite a lot of it. I think even Klingons procreate , although maybe not, maybe they just get a Dog or something. it must be wonderful in your world with your head in the skies , completely devoid of Dhukka ermm.gif

I believe it is called cloud iridescence and has something to do with high-level ice crystals. I don’t witness it as often as I would like and it is less often still that I capture an image.

I'll confess that with my limited photographic skills I tend to use the sky as backdrop...

An interesting backdrop can do wonders to bring out the beauty of the main subject.smile.png
