Good morning Bangkok

That’s gorgeous!

Many thanks and yes I really liked the shot as well.

Currently when leaving the apartment, I have noticed the sun is a lot further north and a long way from the twin tower office blocks. It looks like it will be months before I can replicate the shot. It made me think of the difficulty in calibrating a sun dial because Mother earth’s axis gradually tilts over the year.

I wrote a Windows utility to rename images to the Exif date/time details and file all original photos in monthly folders. That particular shot was renamed “110219_0703_38.JPG”. The camera was a handed down as a gift (previous owner upgraded to a later model). It is a robust and sturdy Canon IXUS 700, now on it’s fifth battery :slight_smile:

yes i love to get up early as i have to leave for office right at 8:30 … the cool breeze and chirping birds are very few to quote along with may natural beauties to sooth your heart…

That sounds lovely! You should take a picture and post it for us!

Up in Aberdeen at this time of year when it’s getting close to the longest day, it doesn’t get properly dark for more than a few hours.

Up at 8.00 am to visit Wat Arun - ‘Morning Temple’ on the banks of Bangkok’s Chao Praya river.


Nice picture!

One more week, everyone!

Come on, let’s see what you guys can do!

(ahem… I realise need to post something too. Will get to that this weekend.)

Looking forward to your entry.

Off Topic:

I get the impression most SitePoint Keyboard Warriors are night owls and seldom see an early morning :slight_smile:

Maybe next month the competition should be “Supper and Night Time Drinks”.



For the challenge and for practice.
