"Six Monks" :- This was photographed at Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, a Theravada Buddhist temple that's high up a mountain that over looks the City of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. The monks were standing by the balcony and all looking over the city that was way down below them. It's a very peaceful and tranquil temple and is said to have been founded in 1383.

" Bicycle Girls" :- This shot was take during the Annual Chiang Mai Flower Festival that's held at the beginning of each February in Thailand. The parade lasts for several hours and involves thousands of people and thousands of flowers. Your senses are bombarded with sights, sounds, smells, colour and smiles. It's an incredble event to see.

"Blinding Light" :- Wat Suan Dok (translates as Flower Garden Temple) is a Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand. It was founded in 1370 CE and is polder than Chiang Mai itself. This is a shot of the sun behind the large 48 meter high bell shaped chedi that's built in a Sri Lankan style.

"Chedi and Trees" :- An ancient, large, stone chedi stands surrounded by trees in the grounds of Wat Chet Yot on the outskirts of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. It is a center of pilgrimage for all those born in the year of the snake. The temple and its grounds date from 1455 CE. The Maha Chedi (also within the temple grounds) clearly shows Indian influences.

"Fields of Omkoi" :- T his was my village and home when I was in the Kingdom of Thailand. High up in the mountains we were several hours drive south from the city of Chiang Mai. It is an idyllic and rural working Thai village full of paddy fields, chili fields and tomato fields. Livestock out grazing in the afternoon sun. Bugs and insects filling the air and reptiles slithering or dashing about. This is real Thailand and not the version presented to the tourists.

"Hor Kham Royal Pavillion" :- The Hor Kham Royal Pavillion was in the grounds of the Royal Flora Ratchaphruek Expo that was situated 10 km from the city of Chiang Mai. The exhibition is no longer there but this image is a good example of Thai architecture and landscaping. The temples, teak buildings are public parks are all lovingly looked after and prided over.

"Lantern Ladies" :- Photographed at Three Kings Monument on Prapokkloa Road within the city of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. The Thai ladies in traditional dress were part of the Loi Krathong Festival that happens each November throughout the Kingdom of Thailand. Lanterns, lit paper balloons, fireworks and floating flower baskets are all part of the festival that goes on for several nights. Loi Krathong takes place on the evening of the full moon of the 12th month in the traditional Thai lunar calendar.

"Large Tree Lizard" :- Shot in the village of Ban Dong in Omkoi, Chiang Mai Province, Thailand. The image is a great example of the wildlife that's natural to the Kingdom. if you are patient and can sit still for long enough you will see all sorts of bugs, insects, reptiles and creatures. I was lucky that i spotted this parge lizard and that he wated for me to take a photo before he vanished in a flash!
