Serenity by palmbook
Serenity
It was December 2015. I had a short trip to Saraburi, a town some 60 kilometers from where I am studying at. Saraburi is close to Bangkok, but still has some pristine nature to enjoy.

That night had a meteor shower. While I could see meteors with my eyes, my camera was not too lucky with it. lol

Hello DeviantArt,

It's been a long time since I last updated my DeviantArt profile. This year is and will be one hell of a busy year. I expect much less presence in this community. But please rest assured that I will not leave!

I will try to update my artworks periodically, so you guys don't miss me too much :)

Anyway, I wish you a very pleasant year ahead!

Kegon Falls in a Misty Afternoon by palmbook
Kegon Falls in a Misty Afternoon
Kegon falls is perhaps the most popular and famous waterfalls in Nikko, Tochigi, Japan. I stayed near Chuzenji lake on the night before. I went to the falls at around 11am, but the fog was so thick that I could not see the falls at all. I decided to do a little trekking first, and came back down in the afternoon. By then, the fog finally gave up, albeit reluctantly. Trace of mist could still be seen all over the place.

Chuzenji Lake and Kegon Falls
Nikko, Tochigi, Japan is one of the famous travel destinations. It is hard to beat the beauty of red maples in a World Heritage site.

This photo is taken from Akechidaira ropeway. The observation deck offers a bird-eye view of Chuzenji lake and the famous Kegon falls. Please be reminded that the bus stops at the ropeway only on the way up. So, stops by before you get to the lake!

Sun Moon Lake
While this picture is not as pretty as I had hoped, I think it's a good idea to generate some activity on my feed :) Next month, I will start having photo trips. I will share photos from my trips to all of lovely yous :D

Sun Moon Lake is the largest in-land lake in Taiwan. Located in the middle of the country, it is very famous as a tourist attraction. Aside from seeing the beauty of the lake, visitors can go to Aboriginal village where one can learn about Taiwanese aboriginals.

  • Mood: Joy
Thank you so much everyone. I have just reached 1,000 watchers milestone today :) In recent days, my number of watchers have increased rapidly. Just today alone I have 20 more watchers or so. This is perhaps the fastest rate of watches I have ever received :)

While I don't know the reason, I would like to thank all of you from your warm support. I promise to keep up the good work. I expect to take a lot of new photos in the last quarter of this year :) (It's a monsoon season here, and I don't do much photography during this season)

Again, thank you so much, and please stay tuned for more photos!

Hi! I just wanted to say that your gallery is absolutly stunning.. I just started photography and I hope I could make great photos like that one day.. What kind of starting kit would you recommend? (I just bought a nikon d3200 and I was wondering what kind of lenses and stuff I should get for now) Thanks for your time!

Right now I'm using D5100 and 16-85mm lens. But I was using the kit lens 18-55mm VR for a long time. In fact, my most popular photo Phu tubberk at Dawn by palmbook  was captured with the kit lens. My second daily deviation was also on the kit lens.

If you are into landscape/cityscape, I would recommend investing in a tripod, a 10-stop ND filter, and perhaps a graduated ND. Then, learn how to take long-exposure photographs :)
