Sangkhlaburi Serenity...

It's been a full-on week and finally it's time to sit back and chill...



When I stayed in Sangkhlaburi, Thailand I was fortunate to see this stunning sunset. This enormous lake - Kheuan Khao Laem - was artificially created and actually flooded out an old village. In the background you can see the longest wooden bridge in Thailand known locally as Uttamanuson Bridge. It's 850 metres long and leads to a Mon village of thatched huts, dirt paths and smuggled goods. The bridge is a good place to view the merging point of the Songkaria, Bikhli and Ranti rivers.

    Very beautiful! I love how the sun's reflection seems to be coming from under the bridge. The colors are also remarkable. Love it!

    Very interesting history lesson, as well.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Lou, This photo was taken BDC(before digital camera) so I was pleasantly surprised when I had it developed. I had no idea I'd managed to capture something so gorgeous and in the same way I remembered it too!

    BTW history has always been one of my fave subjects :)

    Hi Traveller One: I've certainly learned to embrace my inner pinkness since moving to Japan :)

    Hi Antonia: I also would love to be there right now - however at the moment I have to be content with just my memories and this photo :)

    Hi Elsa: I'm glad you like it, though it's pretty difficult to take an "ugly" photo in Thailand IMHO!
