I made a visit to a big Buddha that’s carved into a hillside. Apparently the story goes it/(he ?) was carved by the Thai navy with a laser. Cool stuff !
This is 35 landscape photos merged together, approx 8w x 4h. Usually I’d have cropped the panorama, and used the clone tool to make a little more sky or grass to get maximum angle of view. But as an experiement, I thought I’d just show the whole thing. Why ? because you get a much much wider field of view this way. Also you get to see what I work with, and how the raw panorama comes out.

Don, have been following you photo postings for a while. Inspiring me to go back and look at some of my photos and possibly add a photo post section to my blog. I enjoy how you see the world.
Thanks that’s very kind, I just hope that people like the photos that I post, often they do 🙂

I feel like I’m living vicariously through you..
I can’t explain to you what its like to be bed ridden and in and out of the hospital as much as I am and still feel like I’m traveling with you…
Thank you for sharing.
Happy for you to do so, in some ways that gives me inspiration to post odd and different things, so that people who don’t have the opportunity can see them … so keep tuned, and try stay happy as you can 😉 warm regards DC

Thailand has a Navy? Who knew? I wish our Navy would do cool stuff like that.
Only Thailand I think has lasers, I think they bought them off of Dr Evil from Austin Powers !
Big Buddha is on my bucket list – thanks for the prod.
You are welcome … and good luck ticking (kicking?) your bucket list 🙂
Many thanks 🙂

Right now I’m down with a cold Don, so no blogpost from me today. Hope you are well?
All ok with me hun, need to get my being vs doing balance a bit more on the being side … hope you’re feeling better soon …
Thanks Don, nice to hear you just need to correct your balance. Remember to take care of the negative stress, it is killing in many ways.
For sure, I do my best but sometimes I can’t avoid it LOL
