Canvas of Light blog has a new home!


That's right! A brand new home for my travel photography blog!

I have moved to WordPress and my own domain.
The site looks so much better, more fun to browse, more "pro". Also I will now be able to not only blog about photography but sometimes about travel and other thoughts too!

Please be patient with me as the site is not finished yet and some links are under construction.

So change your links, your RSS feeds, your bookmarks and your habits and please come join me at:

See you soon!

Chiang Mai sunset panorama


This is a view from our balcony tonight in Chiang Mai, Thailand. A beautiful sunset behind the Doi Suthep mountain where one of the most famous temples of Northern Thailand is located.

We didn't have a nice sunset for a while here because of the rainy season. It was always overcast around this time. Tonight was special though, the sky was cloudy but it gave beautiful colors over the mountain.
I just love the view from our new apartment. It's even nicer from the rooftop, where the pool is located *wink wink*

You can click on the photo to have a larger view. Enjoy!

Splashing Elephant ~ Mae Tang


Another shot from Mae Tang park of a mahout ordering the elephant to act crazy and splash all around to get the curious tourists wet and giggling.
I was particularly happy to have a long zoom lens allowing me to stay away from the water and not get my camera all wet.
Getting sprayed by a big geyser in Iceland was enough!

Note: My apologies for the lack of updates in the past few days. I am in the process of revamping my whole blog and website and got caught with a lot of work. I will try to keep posting once every 2 days until my website is up and running again. Stay tuned!

The Vault ~ Reims


Notre-Dame de Paris might be the most famous cathedral in France, but I also am a big fan of the Notre- Dame de Reims cathedral in Reims, North-East of Paris, home of Champagne.

I first visited the cathedral on a cold Christmas Eve and got overwhelmed by the atmosphere. I felt so tiny next to those huge columns and I sat there listening to a children choir singing softly Christmas songs.

The vault is 38m high (125 feet) with no decoration. The austerity and the cold inside creates an intimidating atmosphere.
It is definitely a place I would go visit again and again.

Elephant Love ~ Mae Tang


Is this how elephants kiss?

Seen in Mae Tang Elephant Park, these two elephants seemed playful!

The Bright Light ~ Reims


Is this how the bright light at the end of the tunnel would look like?
This shot was taken in the Basilica of St. Remi in the city of Reims, France. It felt like something special was calling behind those doors..

I chose to post this because of the way I am feeling. With deadlines approaching, responsibilities and moving to a new apartment, pressure and stress are increasing but it feels like I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully all this will be over by the beginning of next week and I can start my own projects and reorganize myself more efficiently!

Elephant shower ~ Mae Tang


Another elephant shot from Mae Tang Elephant Park. This big one was happy showering people around the river while the mahout was riding it. Needless to say I tried to stay as far as possible not to get my camera equipment all wet!

Elephant Bathing is one of the activities of the park. Some parks actually let the visitors get in the river and help wash the elephant but this one was only for mahouts while tourists watch from the bank.
