Na Thon

Posted date:  March 2, 2008

I’m on Ko Samui, doing the photos for Lonely Planet’s upcoming Ko Samui Encounter guide. I have a big fat list of places I have to shoot, but the good thing about doing this job is when I come across something interesting I can usually just shoot away. This happened when I was taking photos of Na Thon, Samui’s main port. It was sunset, and several ships had docked and were unloading fish:

A bit later, the remaining natural light mixed with the fluorescent and tungsten lights of the boats to create a pretty cool effect:

If you look closely, you can see that they are filling the boat with ice, which also added an interesting element to the pic.

Hey Austin,

Beautiful blues on this pic. I like any picture about fish or fishing.

I also like your new look. What about Real Thai?
You just changed the name, right? The old main drag? I guess you just changed the names, but the content is the same.
Nice look.
