I have not post any image of my homeland in a little while, I was recently inspired by a few of the members here.
It is on the last morning in the charming town of Luang Phrabang, it is a misty air and the sunset was just so nice, over the bank of the Mekong.

This sunrise makes me think of my sunset, Pic 183.
Truly blissfull moments, and such decisive events one feels close to thanks to the zoom of the camera !
This aura of sunlight around the golden globe is an omen for a beautiful day ahead.
PS. Thanks for inviting me to Photofolia which I browsed with much interest. However, I can't really join in for the moment, as The time I spend on TE is more than enough, in relation to all my other activities.
However, I shall visit now and again.

Very romantic view of the sunrise. Once I met this scene in Luang Prabang too. Good frame, excellent picture for an every wall. Can you visit your motherland again? or it is very expensive trip?

an excellently composed impression! I like this photo for its peaceful nature, its calming influence and its gentle colors. The mood is well delivered and felt by the viewer. The title you have chosen is also very nice; my compliments!

I have probably said it before, but a lot of your photos look a lot like paintings. Indeed sometimes like paintings where the artist could be accused of being too heavy on the romantic touch. But since this is for real, it's just amazing and very well composed. Marvellous.

Quite a romantic shot, the way you composed this definately works with the foliage branches in the foreground really adds interest and the pretty glowing sun with soft haziness pastel shades in the background clinches the shot. Brilliant, a great sunset shot here and it is always nice to sit back and watch the show. Well done, TFS

Hello Way - Isn't it interesting how different locations seem to have different quality light and sunsets in particular? This has all the feel of SE Asia, the misty (or smokiness)imparts a special atmosphere. A lovely shot which reaffirms my love for Luang Prabang ..... I will go back! Warm regards rosemary

Fascinating nature view in soft color and dim lighting, good capture to the bright sun, distinct image, thanks for sharing an impressive sunrise photo.
Rarely to see photos from Loas, you should share more photos from your hometown, so that we can learn more about your country.

I like a lot the colors and the superb atmosphere.

mkamionka (36250) 2012-05-06 8:02
beautiful capture. I like very much the soft color tones which create an extraordinary atmosphere.
Lush vegetation combined with a slight fog result in an extraordinary effect. Excellent composition, perfect execution.
ChrisJ (113179) 2012-05-07 2:42
I got some fantastic sunsets in Laos. This brings back happy memories. The world was a simpler place in 1998. Superb tight framing & the flattened perspective from the zoom works well here. Excellent warm cold color contrasts between the blue grey & yellow orange. Tfs!

My dear Naughty Way
Oh yes, I understand that feeling of nostalgia you have and I think it must be even stronger for you, given everything you have overcome in life. What a beautiful scene. It has such an atmosphere of tranquillity, longing and yes, a little sadness. I adore these soft colours, and the way you have exposed the sun is nothing less than superb. Wonderful shot, congratulations and I hope you get to see your homeland one day soon :)
PS: Love the pic of the hottie in your Intro! A real heartbreaker, you are!

The great ball of the sun slowly rises up the sky...here you have framed it well with the tops of the trees. The pastel tones are beautifully rendered aided by the morning mist
Good to see a new profile picture & also the funny thread with Lisa

a really nice and romandic sunrise with the sun to be just be seen on the horizon.I like the foreground trees with the colour tints of the sky to make the image so charmy and wonderful.
sacimar (26205) 2012-09-12 9:50
