Full Moon’s moonbow over Yosemite Falls

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

This was another trip to Yosemite to capture a moonbow over Yosemite Falls. The couple pictures below were taken en-route to Yosemite Valley, you can spot Half-Dome in the background of the first one:

This was the perfect combination for a spectacular moonbow thanks to clear skies and a strong water flow at Lower Yosemite Falls:

Thailand: Ang Thong National Marine Park

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

I went on a full day speed boat tour of the Ang Thong National Marine Park west of Koh Samui. We started the tour with a snorkeling stop. While the water was clear it was nowhere as clear as Koh Tao’s waters.

Thailand: Koh Samui

If you don’t want to be stopped every block by tailors and massage shops you may want to stay away from Chaweng Street or avoid Koh Samui altogether…

Thailand: Koh Tao – day 2

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

I booked a snorkeling tour around the island via Diamond Tours, they are cheap, the owners are super nice. They stop by several snorkeling spots around Koh Tao including Shark Bay where you can spot black tip reef sharks, and dock on Koh Nangyuan for the final stop which offers a breathtaking view from its top.
I loved this tour so much that I booked the exact same tour the next day (not that I had much else to do on Koh Taho anyways).

Thailand: Songkran in Chiang Mai

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Since I’m always carrying a DSLR camera I was hesitant participating in Chiang Mai’s Songkran festival. Eventually I extended my stay in Chiang Mai thanks to the red shirts in Bangkok. Luckily people were nice and avoided throwing water as long as the camera was visible (YMMV), it was another story once I left it at the hotel.

Once again, if you value your life I suggest not to rent a motorcycle during the Songkran festival:
