Part of a small series I’m doing on Ko Samui in Thailand, the landscape, the people and their temples.
This photo was taken at dawn in Laem Set.
You can see one of the large terracota pots the locals place on the boulders on the shoreline. I’m not sure why, but it struck me as some kind of offering.
I would recommend Laem Set as a bit of an untapped seascape location. Or maybe there are many photos of this area and I just haven’t come across them yet.

Pentax K5, ISO 80, 10mm, f18, 1.3 secs. ND8 soft grad.
