Luang Probang Sunset

Luang Probang Sunset

Overlooking the Mekong river in Luang Probang, Laos. This was shot on one of my final nights in Luang Probang, and I could not leave without getting at least one more Luang Probang Sunset.

For the last couple of weeks I have been posting images in my library and not taking any new photos. However I have been working on a couple of side projects as well. Unfortunately, today was not one of the days there I would end up getting anything done. In fact I think today is one of the most non-getting-stuff-done day I have had in awhile. And not in a good way.

I made a huge list of things to get done last night and when I went to bed I was pretty excited to accomplish every one of them. Then the sleep evaded me. longer and longer. I ended up waking up around noon with only about 5 hours of sleep and feeling like crap, so I slept some more. Then when I did get out I felt incapable of doing any actual work. In fact this image I’m posting is the only thing I am doing today.

Now that its past 8pm, i’m finally starting to perk up so maybe i’ll get something else done. Like drink a bit of whiskey and start booking flights. It’s always best to book flights with a bit of a buzz. I am more inclined to book whatever flight without looking for another that is maybe $5 cheaper. And it’s also a bit exciting to wake up the next morning and see where I am going to end up.

This image was shot on my Sony a7R II . The Fujifilm X100T was already doing a timelapse sequence of the sunset, and only the Sony would go wide enough to get the whole scene in. This is shot at a 15mm (equivalent) focal length using the Sony SEL1018 10-18mm lens.

Processed in Lightroom, Photoshop, and Macphun’s Intensify CK to really bring out the colours of the sunset. actually the tweaks were fairly minor consider what can actually be done with the dynamic range available with the Sony.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
