    Hillbilly's resort through a REBEL (dSLR)

    Early last week I cashed in my prize from the last TD photo contest. 3 days/2 nights at HB's Resort in the Phitsanulok area, & to say the least my gf & I had a wonderful time!

    I would like to thank HB, his wife & his extended family who works at the resort.

    HB is a bit of a celebrity in town, people would ask where I was from, I'd say America, & they would say the same as HB. He was knows to all.

    While we were unpacking Monday night, I noticed the smile in the sky & took this photo:


    so the vacation was off to a good start.

    The whole time the weather was perfect! Really making for some beautiful pictures of the resort!










    the 2nd day I fell asleep on this thing for an hour!


    the Nan River just outside of the resort was simply gorgeous!


    We did a lot of exploring outside of the resort, which made the holiday even more enjoyable! Not only were the locals a delight, but the scenery was beautiful. Here are some photos (in no particular order).





















    Near the resort was a nice temple. This monk seems like a really good man, he spoke highly of HB.




    On the way to the bus station we went to the famous Wat Yai for a visit:












    I'll say it again, my gf & I had a GREAT time. If anyone is in the Phitsanulok area, visit the D&G Resort, it's gorgeous & so is the surrounding area!

    more pictures to come.

    hooray.

    i can now see the images.
    god knows how, but flickr was listed in my 'exceptions' in firefox 'show all images'.

    no idea how that could have happened.

    Mate, those are sweet pics.

    What does your wife think when you are constantly stopping and taking photos?

    thanks everyone.

    Nawty : Bobcock & I are different types of shooters, going after different game, so I don't even think these shots even phase him.

    I should mention that most of these pictures were shot at a f/2.8, making for the nice background blur. The danger of that is the depth of field/focus is reduced, making it easier to have a shot totally out of focus.

    The payoff is worth the shots I've missed.

    gf, not wife!

    she's use to it. Either she continues walking, or if it's a shot I want to get & the subject is giving me the eye, she pretends she's talking to me while I snap away. So she's assisted in a few of them.

    They do...you are his idol.

    Worse people to have in your fan club....think he is jockeying for president at the moment.

    I've now got the lens to replicate what bustak does, before I didn't, and yes, I do like his pics very much.

    Today i hope to purchase the new Canon 5D Mk II, it's advertised, but not sure it has actually arrived, they told me new year, but it is on Fotofiles website with a price.

    I expect to be disappointed, but let's hope eh? That'll be full frame as well, which means my wide angle lenses will now come into their own.

    I love the sharpness and overexposed background of this one, usually I hate oversexposure of any kind and do everything to overcome it, but this time it works great.

    You know what I'm going to say, Busty, about your pics, so just assume I've said it, ok?

    Yours, too, Bob. Very nice.

    wonderful stuff bustak...these two are worth repeating...excellent colours in the first and a great moment in the second...I've said before that you have a great eye for things...I mean I see these kind of scenes every day but never consider them pic-worthy...

    Superb shots there. I only wish I could produce something vaguely similar.

    The photos really give a bit of an uncommon view of Thailand!
    Thank you! I do hope you post more photos!
