The Bridge on the River Kwai, is 2 km to the left, of where this was taken. There are several popular backpacker guesthouses & rafthouses, along this northern section of the river. This part of the town of Kanchanaburi, is not a bad place, to enjoy a cold Singha beer (or 2).

Hello Chris, this is a very beautiful place and for sure I will enjoy a beer there, or two...and maybe three.... I like the mouvement of the water, it seems that the water is the only thing moving there in the peaceful place. Thanks

Very beautiful composition in the gorgeous place. Many soft Colors and good contrast in a Strange house.

Good shot. In Brazil these houses of simple wooden construction, often on stilts, are named "palafitas". Nice composition, excellent colors and reflections. Well done.

Nice light and colors and a cheerful mood in this image!Well captured with the diagonal line of the rafthouses and good handling of the lightcontrasts.A fine place to enjoy a beer and take a few shots ;-))

A refreshing and interesting houses though the posts look quite flimsy. Nice POV and the variety of green tones are very relaxing for the eyes. The water looks tempting for a dip. Beautiful shot!! Have a nice day.

Very well done again Chris, been to Thailand many times over the years and still have not visited the river Kwai, next time:-), nice water reflections.
RGatward (20086) 2005-10-05 9:19
I love the way the Thais organise their waterfronts, good illustration of this example.

I like this shot a lot. These kinds of scenes are so foreign for me, I am very impressed that people live in houses like this one. Must be just a tad humid in the basement ;-)
I really enjoyed this one, I spend a lot of time looking at it. Thanks!
Cormac (26565) 2005-10-05 10:52
Great shot Chris - it communicates a lot of atmosphere and sense of place. I almost expect to see Alec Guiness walk out of the house! Great work!
Zepi (22848) 2005-10-05 11:43
Impressionnantes ces maisons construite comme ça au dessus de la rivière !
Très belle prise de vue !
Ton cadrage est juste, il met parfaitement en valeur ce paysage somptueux
Merci pour le partage

It's a special place and houses,that built on the water,this has a particular style of the life for poeple there,
I like it,great sharpness and colors and rteflection, very nicely composed,
john_c (24666) 2005-10-05 12:41
What an interesting place you have depicted here. This rambling collection of little houses built into the slope beckon one indeed to enjoy a drink or just meditate and watch the water. I love the hues and tones here. The rafthouse on the left nicely balances the scene. Well seen and captured.

Water and sun from the river Kwai, this makes me whistle...
Thes houses are very interesting, we call here "pilotis".

Hi Chris. Interesting how this riverside arrangement of housing looks more and more organized the longer one looks at it. Again the beautiful colors in the bright light, and the rippled water reflections are a good add in the front.
ndb1958 (9289) 2005-10-05 15:22
nice picture of the housing near the river.
PJE (20758) 2005-10-05 18:29
Chris an excellent photo showing how people live. Very clear and great POV showing how close the house is to the water. I have to ask how do these people manage when the storms come? Does the water ever rise above this level? Seems so dangerous to live like this so close to the water! A great photo for your gallery.

Hi Chris. I might have to stop even longer than 2 beers with this beautiful setting! You can really tell this place has character. The turquoise water and reflections really put this shot over the top. Very nice one Chris!
weswang (18223) 2005-10-06 4:14
Hi Chris, I enjoy the view of the "long legged houses". You have well captured the magic three in a row in this picture. Good perspective view and nice contrast.
sam224 (6215) 2005-10-06 4:50
Good shot with nice reflections in the water. Nice perspective and composition: these houses leaning on water are really attractive.

hdl (7035) 2005-10-06 7:24
I remember ever having drunk singha beer in a bar on the coast here (really!). Not bad at all, but I think it would have tasted better in this settting. Very special houses! Nicely taken. Thanks for sharing.
jhm (161051) 2005-10-06 8:04
Again a wonderful picture with this pole village, the different colour together make a great composition, excellent colours and reflections.
Emile (20352) 2005-10-06 10:43
Very good picture, very well captured, nice colours and sharpness. The composition is excellent. Good reflection on the water. Good work.
Well done. TFS.
jmaddocks (563) 2005-10-07 11:47
G'day Chris: What an awesome place this must be to live, and how fortunate for you to be able to visit. This is a well composed shot. The colours are beautiful, and you can really get a feel fo what life is like in this part of Thailand. Nature is a part of their home. Well taken!
bpelvan (3798) 2005-10-07 16:55

Indeed an excellent TE-shot from these typical houses certainly on the known river Kwai, clear natural sunny coloring, very well done Chris

Hi Chris, Nice place that you found, the reflection and the mouvement of the water is nice. Well seen from a good angle, have a nice week end.

kclai (2267) 2005-10-12 2:21
Pretty good shot. And there seem to be many more to come, isn't it, Chris.
Again, a beuatifully captured picture, Chris.

That waterfront house built on the Kwaï river should be ideal to rest and spend time in the area, gorgeous emerald ton
Happy new year Chris
