Floating Market

Floating Market

The Damnoen Saduak floating market, about an hour outside of Bangkok, is a must see. The merchants, their boats, the colorful fare – it makes for a unique setting with great photographic appeal.

As we crossed a nearby footbridge, I noticed that the strong afternoon sun had lit up a portion of the waterway while the surrounding docks and buildings framed the scene with perfect shadows.  I waited on the bridge for several minutes for the boats below to navigate the shadows.
