A Back-lit Buddha, Three in a Bed and an English Beach

The first image for today is titles "Karmic Silhouette". Image This is a shot from inside a smaller building within the Wat Phra Singh temple complex in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand. I love wandering around these Thai temples, they are rich in color and decoration, highly ornate with their carvings and architecture and above all such peaceful places to escape from the noise and mayhem of the city and life in general.

Shot number two is rather unusual and called "Then There Were Three". I stopped to photograph these as they looked very unusual to me. I am used to seeing individual stones and grave placements but have never seen three together like this before. They are located in the churchyard of St Nicolas's Church in Shoreham, Sussex, England.

Last image from me today is called "Wooden Breakwater". This is not the beach at Brighton but another non-sandy thick pebbled beach further along the coast of England. Eastbourne sits a 40 minute drive east of Brighton (approximately 25 miles), it has the very scenic and terrifyingly high "Beachy head" (the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain, rising to 162 m or 530 ft) just to it's west. On the day I traveled there the weather took a turn for the worse and it was wet, windy and cold. Thankfully the weather conditions helped me to get this rather bleak and dramatic shot.
