Landscape of Phuket

Phuket Landscape Photography

Phuket, in the south of Thailand, is the largest island of the country. The island has many incredible places to improve your skills in landscape photography. Phuket is a wonderful touristic place, with beautiful tropical beaches, and many viewpoints, offering photography lovers some truly spectacular landscapes and panoramas. However, don’t miss the colorful sunrises and breathtaking sunsets of Phuket. A true spectacle of Nature!

REFLECTION

WAVES OF SAND

Two similar images taken in different light condition at Rawai area, in south of Phuket, during low tide. It is the most amazing landscape location I have ever had pleasure to photograph during sunrises.


THUNDERSTORM

This is one of the last image taken during a dramatic thunderstorm behind the hill of Patong Beach in Phuket. I stacked 8 images to get this amazing result.


Two different evening perspectives and compositions from the hidden and fantastic Freedom beach in Phuket.


MAGIC LIGHT

A panorama sunset image from the popular Windmill viewpoint in south of Phuket. It is a good spot for the landscape photographers.


Phuket Big Buddha

The Big Buddha Phuket is a 45 meters tall white marble statue visible from almost all points of the island, and it is one of the most important Phuket landmarks. I took this photo at a late afternoon, from 7 kilometers of distance. The sun has set exactly behind the large statue!


 

Two different perspectives and compositions around Phuket coastline. The first one was taken at the Little Bar restaurant garden just after sunset. The second image my camera was fixed inside a mangrove tree trunk in the east cost of Phuket before sunset!


TWILIGHT

A long exposure for capturing a perfect sunset twilight from above of Patong Beach, Phuket Thailand.


Two completely different compositions and days around the Phuket coastline. The first image showcasing a little blue fishing boat with its net at sunset. The second image is of a much bigger boat with the water motion in the foreground.


THE LEGEND

I’ve visited the remote and deserted Krating Cape, a hidden viewpoint reachable in 40 minutes on foot through a narrow path. It was a silent night with a clear sky. This spot is good also for landscape and seascape photography


Two different landscape images taken at the same day by tele zoom. The sunset image was taken from the Patong sidewalk because the beach was closed to the public due to spread the COVID-19.  This April 7, 2020 supermoon traditionally called also Pink Moon, as the rising moon came up above the Doi Thepnimit Monastery in the hill of Patong, Phuket Thailand.


LEMON GRASS

Promthep Cape or Laem Promthep Viewpoint is the most visited and photographed Phuket viewpoints. Laem Promthep Viewpoint is said to feature the most beautiful sunsets in Thailand. Think about behind me there were hundreds of people to watch sunset. You should arrive here early to get the best spot for taking nice photos without tourists in your frame!


THE CORALS

This place is hidden and unknown by the photographers but full of life and nature. The first warm ray of sunshine hits the corals making them warm. A unique spectacle of Nature. Corals are very fragile and should not be touched or trampled under any circumstances! Respect always the Nature.


OLD WRECK

An old wreck of local fishermen has long been lying on the east coast of Phuket. This wreck had become popular by landscape photographers. Unfortunately, the sea has eroded all its beauty and you just have to remember it like this!


Three completely different compositions and perspectives around the Phuket coastline. The first night image was taken in the deep of the night with a perfect tide, and the Milky Way rights above these ghost boats. ‘The life’ image was taken at the morning twilight during low tide in the south of Phuket. The last image was taken at the same area but in a different light and tide condition. The magic of dawn light!


THE PILLAR

The orange warm sun rise taken from the east coast of Phuket island. The horizontal strips of sand due to the receding of the tide, are perfectly aligned with the horizon of the sea with the sun appears to rest on the pillar. This is the magic of Phuket!
The next image is one of the unique V rock formation found on Patong bay with the sun setting between the V-shaped rock formation!

‘V’ ROCK FORMATION


PAINTED SKY

These are two of my favorites coastal sunset images, I have ever taken. The first taken from under an old mangrove tree during low tide. The sky was completely full of colors. Next one, at the lonely mangrove tree, I had the mud all over my ankles because it’s a swampy area. This light sunset conditions were superb to take the perfect landscape image ever!

THE INFINITY


SHADES

I took this sunset image from Windmill Viewpoint in Phuket south west coast. I blended three exposures and I stacked three long exposure images with the light trails.
