KOH LIPIE………………….

Koh Lipie is another of those stunningly beautiful and idyllic islands that Thailand seems to  have in abundance…………clear turquoise water, clean golden beaches fringed with tall elegant palms and the tranquillity of not very many occupants…………

Above and below………..on my second afternoon on Koh Lipie, an incredibly violent storm could be seen approaching the island and for about half an hour before it arrived, it bathed the island in an eerie translucent light, before it emptied its contents in a raging deluge….. photos do not really capture this strange light effect but I’m posting a few all the same

I got up at 05.30 the next morning to find that cloud remnants from the storm had left brushstrokes across the sky, making for a truly wonderful sunrise………………..

This lad came and sat right next to me for half an hour or so as I sat watching the sunrise………………
