A Skyful of Blue … Koh Lanta, Thailand – Landscape Photography

I came upon this tranquil scene while exploring the west coast of Koh Lanta island, in southern Thailand.

From flophouse to palace

In my ongoing search for the ideal resort, I checked out a wide range of inns along this stretch of coast – from very basic and casual backpacker-friendly flophouses to palatial 5-star hotels. But neither of those types are quite to my liking. 

A skyful of blue

As I approached this little resort, I slowed down and peered in the gate, and saw pretty much the same scene you see in the photo. A bit of greenery, a sandy patio, a bold stripe of marine blue, and an overarching skyful of blue. I stopped, parked my scooter, walked inside, and looked around. 

This shot, taken from just inside the gate, captures the tranquil environment of the place. Just the kind of peaceful retreat where I'd love to stay.

I ended up staying at a resort further down the coast, but this one’s high on my list if I ever return to the blissful isle of Koh Lanta.

Very nice photo.


Thanks. Glad you like it.

A very beautiful place. The abundance of blue color makes the photo calm. This place asks to pause and enjoy the surrounding beauty.

Очень красивое место. Изобилие голубого цвета делает фото спокойным. Это место так и просит сделать паузу и насладится окружающей красотой.

Oh my God! How blue can a sky be???? Wonderful!


Thanks. I sure did not "feel blue" when seeing skies of this color during my stay there.

This is really beautiful

Sky in the photo is so clear and the color of it is so vibrant that one can assume it a photoshoped image. Very rarely we see such a clear scenery.

Very Beautiful

Your photo is rotated about 90 degrees. Did you do that intentionally???


Unfortunately it happens when you upload photos taken by phone on to steemit. It can be solved by editing the photo or re-uploading it from another site.


which site brother @jollyapeheinheaven


i made a post about this :) check my feed.


no brother i did not. when i upload it . it becomes rotate

Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky...

Muy buena tu foto, ¿el lugar es un malecón o un resort ? Porque el entorno se ve espectacular.

It looks beautiful, I would like to spend a weekend there and relax.

This reminds me of the last time I traveled by plane, it was for Aruba, an amazing and beautiful place. No one was bad, everyone was very respectful and kind, as it should be. I hope to travel there some day ... Greetings from Venezuela :)
