Photographer's Note

This photo was taken in Nong Khai, Thailand on the Mehkong river bordering Laos, during the Loi Krathong festival those orange streaks in the sky are floating lanterns the Thai people light and send off in the air to ward off bad spirits and send away all the bad thoughts and feelings the people have. In the front is a houseboat restaurant where we enjoyed a delicious Thai cusine and enjoyed a show as the sky filled up with orange lights. Another way to celebrate this event is to send the Krathongs (little Boats) out into the river with a finger nail clipping or a lock of hair and it will send your bad spirits down the river with you.
