photo of Sunset over Andaman Sea

Wonderful sunset on a mostly deserted beach in Khao Lak, Thailand , today. Normally my photos of sunsets are washed out and don’t even provide any idea of how beautiful the sunset was. The photos I took today (after a certain point in the sunset) somehow came up with enhanced color (significantly more than I saw live). Also the area around the sun is more distorted in this picture and those seeming camera effects around the sun were indeed not what my eyes saw.

photo of a chicken curry dish served in a pineapple.

Photo of a great meal in Khao Lak, Thailand. Frankly I ordered it just because it sounded cool to have it served in a pineapple. It was cool, but also tasted fantastic, the orchids on the pineapple and drink are real.
