Scenes from the Golden Triangle

Visiting the Golden Triangle region in Northern Thailand - where Thailand, Myanmar and Laos meet. We took a bus to Chiang Saen, a town along the Thai - Laos border and then boarded a boat for a trip along the mighty Mekong. 

Following are scenes along the Mekong River nearby Chiang Saen. Boat traffic on the Mekong with Laos in the background.Upload from July 10, 2012

Nearby Chiang Saen along the shores of the Mekong is a giant Golden Buddha. The large blue boat below gives some sense of scale as to how large this Buddha actually is.

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
