Many khom loi.


Yee Peng is a Lanna holiday celebrated in Northern Thailand, home of the once Lanna Kingdom. Lanterns, flying, floating and hanging, are an fundamental part of the observance.

Being among 4000 people simultaneously releasing 1000 flying lanterns was one of my life's most extraordinary moments. I tried to convey in words and pictures the 10 hours before, during and after here: http://fourletternerd.wordpress.com/...ting-lanterns/

The first shot captures the excitement of the moment while the second shot really conveys the breathtaking view of the whole event.
Well done!
