This is a restored 14th century Buddhist temple. Its a bit a schlep from the other major temples in the city, but I suppose it depends from where one starts. Anywho, its very, very impressive.
Construction on Wat Phra Singh began in 1345 when King Phayu, the fifth king of the Mangrai dynasty, had a chedi built to house the ashes of his father King Kham Fu. A wihan and several other buildings were added a few years later.
I spent ages messing about taking pictures of the line of statues above. Trying different depths of field, focus and view points. This, I think, is the best of the bunch.
I also liked this 'gold' covered chedi with the elephant heads sticking out on each side. We arrived just before dusk with a view for some sunlight glinting shots. No such luck!
These are the early evening shots and the next post is the tripod, nighttime efforts.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
