Rise of the Moon at Koh Yao Yai

“Think carefully, speak truthfully, decide correctly, talk softly, act faithfully, live honestly, work diligently, behave properly. You are bound to succeed in any walk of life. You will enjoy peace of mind and happiness. You will have a pure conscience. You will enjoy inexhaustible spiritual wealth” ~ Sri Swami Sivananda

As the moon rises and appears in Durban tonight so it rises too on the island of Koh Yao Yai near Phuket Thailand. I think back in wonder about our amazing trip earlier this year and all that it took to get there. Also being blessed to spend and share that journey with an amazing human soul. The sunrises and sunsets (in photo) were breathtakingly serene on this island.

Bangkok street at around midnight near Soi Cowboy.

F2.2, ISO 2500, SS 1/15th sec – we were walking at midnight after a few beers and I didn’t realize at the time that my Canon 6D could have handled ISO 6000 giving me a faster SS / more clarity.

Location: Chalong Pier, Phuket

Canon 6D, F11, 1/640 sec, ISO 640, handheld, sunrise. I blew out the sky and had to fiddle quite a bit to get something back instead of tossing the single RAW file.
