Today is the 1st of March, which means that in 30 days, we’ll be jumping in a plane and leaving Chiang Mai, the place we’ve been calling home for the past 3 years in Thailand. It’s going to be a sad departure but we’re looking forward to moving to our new chosen city: Granada, Spain. [...]
It’s been a while since we had beautiful sunsets in Chiang Mai, since the beginning of the rainy season this year. I was lucky I grabbed this one just in time while I was shooting something else. The way the sun rays beam up the sky while the sun is setting behind the distant mountains [...]
Well, Holy Lightning Batman! As I’m writing, there’s another thunderstorm passing over Chiang Mai in Thailand. It’s actually more of a lightning show than rain. My wife warned me there was a storm approaching in the horizon. So I grabbed my camera and my tripod, set it in a dry spot, pointed the camera towards [...]
We had the smoke season, with ugly dusty skies, no visibility and a barely breathable atmosphere. We had the hot season, with temperatures reaching 40 degrees C (100+ F), cooled down for a few days during Songkran, the water festival.

The rainy season shouldn’t be here yet, it usually starts late North of Thailand. However, cloudy skies and thunderstorms decided to invite themselves earlier in Chiang Mai, giving us beautiful skies and dramatic sunsets.
~~oOo~~ Here’s another dramatic sunrise taken in the Sweihan desert near Abu Dhabi in the UAE. I waited until dawn on the highest dune in the region (trust me, it’s so tiring to climb a dune) just to capture this moment when the sky seems to fade from bright to darkness. It was worth the [...]
~~oOo~~ Chiang Mai, like most of Thailand, has about 2 seasons: the Hot Season and the Rainy Season (although it gets chillier here in winter). The Rainy Season in Chiang Mai is from around June to October with August and September being the rainiest months. It brings respite from the heat and is a great [...]
While many pilgrims were gathered on the last standing rock in Cabo Finisterra, watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean, I turned around and noticed those clouds creeping from behind. I climbed a few rocks further away to take a nice shot without many people showing up. An old woman was sitting there alone [...]
