I am always struck by how beautiful Southeast Asia is, and these photos do a great job showing off that beauty.

Gorgeous country. I love the reflections in the water.

I'm in the process of reworking my first NaNo. I want to send out a completed version by the end of March. (I live on the edge.)

Lovely photos. I especially like the first one of the river.

And since yesterday, I have been enjoying your blog. It is so interesting and well done! I love traveling to other places...and learning about other places while sitting in my computer chair.

So sorry. Didn't mean to leave two (now three) comments. The first one disappeared from my screen, so I typed another one. :-)

What a VERY different landscape from ours here in Norway... So strange and beautiful. Thanks to you for showing me.


Nice weekend to you, from Norway.

Oh don't show me this stuff it's so beautiful I think I'm going to be sick: I've ALWAYS wanted to go to in no particular order: Thailand/Cambodia/Vietnam/Laos/Burma ... I DID go to India when I had been planning to fly Bangcock (long story) and it was v nice... but I still have that yearning... also India is nowhere NEAR as Green as what I've seen of the SE Asian area it was more like what you'd expect of the non-jungle bits of Africa... v dusty and totally reliant on a massive monsoon (I heard it is literally x3 as much rain in Goa as in most of Thailand:- and yet Goa though green is LESS green...)

oh I won't babble on this is a fascinating blog tho

;->...

Gledwood said...

ps phuut! phaasaa? lao may

is that right?

I even learned some Thai before I didn't go...

the ! and ? are meant to represent falling and rising tones

Thanks for stopping by. I love your photos. I will be back. I have always wanted to visit that part of the world.

Petunia said...

Oh yes, the seagull in my SFW post is real :D
Thank you for visiting my blog;)

Marie said...

Hi.
Answer to your question: I takes photos of the tree whenever the weather changes. I had one series of the same tree in January too. There is a link on the "elm"(another colour) on my post. Come have a look.

The landscape is so beautiful but so alien to me. As someone who works with plants it is always strange to look at a scene where your knowledge is suddenly useless! I have never been to a tropical temperate zone. Lovely shots. Bye for now!

Paulie said...

Simply exquisite!

Andrée said...

you are right: picture post card: but all of them! My SWF is here. Thank you.

amy said...

Gorgeous reflections, and I'm so glad to have surfed to your site. What a great insight into such a different culture for me. Thank you!

Dewdrop said...

So jealous! I would love to have that kind of view!!!

Sonia said...
