A canal or 'Klong' in Ban Phli, near the new International airport of Suvanabhumi, in Bangkok. I liked the reflections & perspective here. The red, white & blue at centre left, is the Thai flag.
'Suvanabhumi' is Thai for 'cobra swamp' But I never saw any snakes there. Did see one or 2 snakes in Ayutthaya, nearby 'Ancient City', & Sokhothai, though.

A peaceful place by the canal, the lushness of the vegetation is very eye-catching!
The railing creates good lead-in lines in this well composed image...
The calm water reflects well!

I presume nobody swim here ... not with the a 'cobra swamp' nearby. However, the reflections loks good and good capture of real life living conditions. Well done ... tfs.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Nous plongeons avec délice dans ce décor exotique à la végétation luxuriante.
Bel effet de perspective.
Le jeu de reflet est très bien vu dans cette réalisation.

'cobra swamp' – where are they?
It is a nice picture with several points of interest such as the walkway and its reflexion, the chaotic electrical wires, characteristic of many less developed places and, of course the Thai flag, symbol of patriotism and proud of that people.
I like it. Well done.

are there lots of cobras there ?
nice capture of the place, looks clean and pretty green neighbourhoog

a nice name, have you seen some cobras there? The greean and grey are dominating your capture very strong. The water is a bit separating both but also combining them. Great POV for this street scene full of details.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Nice capture of daily life with some interesting reflections. The curving handrail makes for a good perspective.

I think I might have seen this same canal scene, as I stayed in the Bangkok Airport a few years ago. This shot has a very nice clarity to it, with everything sharply drawn and well defined, which makes it seem like being there. Excellent.

the pov is very nice, the contrast on the water and the balance are nice, good photojob.

a fine calm post of this canal with good composition of lines and nice reflections. also excllent lighting. I've read about this airport. Apparently they complained about the smell of the airport due to the swamp ;)

Bonsoir mon Ami Chris,
Encore une belle balade en Thailande et la découverte de lieux insoupçonnables, hors des entiers battus.
Le cadrage et la luminosité sont bons, les reflets agréables.
Cela me plait

Nice scene from the old Thailand that was able to survive near the gigantic modern new airport. I'm sure there are no snakes at the airport itslef, but maybe some were able to survive in this place. Great reflections,
