Photo of the Week (2 May 2016)
This is my first photo entry for the Photo of the Week series that I’ve now started, and we’re starting off this series with an image that I was quite proud of shortly after uploading it to the internet.
The photo was taken on Koh Maprao and can even be found on this site here. This photo was taken at sunset, obviously, and I think it was possibly the best sunset I had seen during the few days I spent there.
I’d love to go back and take some more shots on this island and also perhaps from the other islands around Phuket. Luckily I’m conveniently located in Bangkok, so it should be easy enough for me to do.
What does make me rather proud of this image is that I had uploaded and I was actually requested by Yahoo! to include it in their weather app for smartphones.
This certainly isn’t the only image I’m proud of for the work that was done on Koh Maprao, but this is a weekly singular shot and not a collection series, and I’m sure there will be more to come from Koh Maprao, or Coconut Island.
What I think made an image like this possible is because the island is secluded and isn’t like the others in the area that are packed with tourists because of James Bond or The Beach. Instead, it’s a simple island with some excellent resort accommodations. Overall a great place to relax and just enjoy the calmness of the surroundings, preferably with the phone turned off.
I think that’s all for today’s entry. Please subscribe to my Newsletter that will be published tomorrow by entering your email using the menu to the left of the screen. Also, my shots can be ordered as prints with editions with a limit of 6 prints per edition starting at $200. If you’d like a print, please email me.
Also, I’m accepting bookings! Let me know if you need a photographer!
