Shutter speed, and AF continuos

to take these pictures I set up the camera at low shutter speed around 1/20 - 1/40, AF Continuous, and AE/AF look. Due to that day was sunny I set up the camera at low ISO 100
It is not a car race but taxis and private cars running along an avenue.

King Naresuan the Great Shrine at Khao Yai, Prachin Buri.

_DSC0018
King Naresuan the Great Shrine is located at Noen Hom Intersection, Tambon Ban Phra, 9 k.m. north of Prachine Buri by Highway No. 320. The shrine houses a standing stature of King Naresuan to commemorate his camping at Prachin Buri on the way from Ayutthaya to Cambodia in 1589. We started our cycling trip to Khao Yai National Park here

King Naresuan was sent to be the adopter child of the King of Burma because of the armistice contract and this made him to feel that one day he would make his own country to be independent. The King of Burma had a son that was the same age as King Naresuan named “Phra Maha Uparat”. They both are friends and also the competitor. One day they played the cock fighting and the fighting cock of King Naersuan won then he talked to Phra Maha Uparat that one day he would make his own country independent from Burma.

King Naresuan waged wars with many countries and made Ayuthaya Kingdom to be independent and more expansive. Thus, Thai people respected him and recalled him that he saved the country from invader and dedicate the designation “King Naresuan the Great” and built the shrine to respect and recall him. It is believed that King Naresuan used a white-tailed fighting cock in a cock fighting game with Phra Maha Uparat.

The shrine is surrounded by cockerels as a reminder of a cock-fight between King Naresuan and the Burmese Crown Prince.

Under orange sunshine!

What I like of Bangkok is during the sunset, the sunshine sometimes gets a really strong orange colour lighting the sky, the cloud, and the city with a special shade of orange colour!!!
