Photo: Alms Giving on Don Khong Island, Laos
Ever since my retirement travel adventures have brought me to Southeast Asia I have been fascinated by the Buddhist practice of Alms Giving. This scene took place early one morning on the island of Don Khong, in the 4,000 Islands areas of Southern Laos. I love the way the light came off the river and highlighted the monks saffron robes. I had to do a little enhancement in Adobe Lightroom to bring up the shadows on the faces but other than that, this scene is pretty much as I saw it.
