It was a strange night on the island of Koh Chang ,Thailand.
I hadn't been taking photos long and was really struggling to set the camera up and capture this spectacle..
I have seen hundreds over the years but this was like nothing else.
Here I was on this small island in the middle of the Thai gulf with my tripod sinking in the sand getting camera shake and over exposing the images.
Pang had just bought me a beer but I couldn't relax as alI I wanted to do was capture this scene before the lights went out.
I took a hundred shots that night but due to setting up the camera incorrectly I had to bin 99 of them .
Luckily I shoot RAW so I kind of salvaged this as a reminder of the best sunset ever ..
Hope to see you again.

Several layers of paint over the years add to the intrigue of this image. I have been searching for a long time for a door like this, with the old style handle, unique rust patterns, cracked and peeling paint. The search is fun, but the find is emotional.
This adult male bufflehead kept it's distance from me no matter where I tried to position myself for a good shot. After what seemed like an hour, I managed to capture him against a nice coloured background reflecting in the water.

This male was very cooperative as I photographed him. It was as though he knew what I was after. Thanks M. Duck!
