Sunset at Kamala Beach, Phuket

Posted by on 14 March 2008

There’s a story behind every unforgettable pic. And for these pics, the story is short and sweet: we were at the beach on our first day in Phuket, the children were playing with sand, Lola and I were enjoying the water, and the sun was starting its descent into the horizon. I realised that I had only minutes to spare before that huge crimson ball would completely disappear, so I quickly ran back into our hotel room — dripping clothes, sandy feet and all — and grabbed my Nikon D40. I remember saying to myself – ‘the hardwood floor can be cleaned up later but the sun waits for no one‘. Then I ran to the small bridge connecting our hotel to the beach and took 6 shots of the setting sun.

Three of those shots were so badly blurred (from my shaking hand and my pounding heart!) that I deleted them immediately from my camera. One was a bit blurred but should still come out okay for a 4R print. But the other two shots — absolutely magnificent additions to my collection of sunset pics — are simply too beautiful not to share!

Kamala Beach is said to be one of the best places to savour the sunset in Phuket. To that, I totally agree and these photos are proof of that!
