Sunset at Tonsai Beach, Thailand

KrustyMusicGIFHi (1).gif

Hello my friends!
A big thanks to @travelcontest for hosting this great initiative!

This is my entry, I hope you like it! 😃


I took this photo at Tonsai Beach during my travels around Thailand that took place between December 2017 and January 2018.
Sunset over there are really amazing! That evening I was already prepared with my gear to take photos at the beach and I am really happy of the results. As you can see on low tides the longtail boats get "trapped" in the sand and the warm colors during sunset are really nice.

Thanks for reading and good luck to all the contest participants!


End of day sun gives way to the moon rising in the mountains, losing warmth across the land with a promise of arriving in the morning.

A time to reflect!

Trout dam in the Central Drakensberg mountains South Africa, a short getaway hideout to rejuvenate the soul in nature. Private property offering absolute silence, except bird song and baboons barking somewhere out there as the sun goes down.


Thanks @travelcontest always appreciated.






@joanstewart, you've been given LUV from @travelcontest.

Check the LUV in your H-E wallet. (3/3)

Here is my entry of the Sunshine disappearing over the horizon at Adder Rock on Stradbroke island in Queensland Australia. Such a beautiful island to explore 😊 and also has the best sunsets!

Greeting everyone ,

This is my entry for the "SUNSHINE" theme .

The picture was taken during my journey to Inya Lake , Myanmar in one of the old wooden temple in that area.

I guess the kitten really love the sunshine . I can feel it must be so warm , gentle and comfortable . Well, yes it was a cold at that time , even me use sweater all the time while travelling there.





I would like to invite my fellow friend to join the fun , @menzo and @tawadak24

If possible i also want to be mention in every update for your latest contest , @travelcontest

Cheers and have some !PIZZA

Thanks so much for inviting your friends to the contest and good luck! :)


That is one of my favorite topics! I have hundreds of sunny pictures on my phone, but today I want to share that photo. I took it 2 years ago when COVID-19 was spreading around the world. Many people were locked at home. That situation in the world was terrible.

It was spring, and once I went outside wearing a mask, I looked at people everyone was still frustrated because no one knew what is actually going on... Then I looked at the sky, and I realized that it was cherry blossom season... Nature was showing how beautiful our world is and the shining sun was trying to touch everyone and cheer up...

Well, Christmas is coming and maybe it isn't the right time to share spring pictures, but... :)


Photography is a time-machine, so spring - it is! :D
Thank you!

Hello everyone! On the above photo is the eldest son of my youngest son.:) The picture was sent to me during their bonding time after their momentous event (Halloween) early in the morning with their costumes and baskets to claim their prizes. As you can see, the weather was fine with the sunshine claiming the day!

End of the day at Chocolate beach; nothing better to be able to relax while drinking a cold beer and contemplating this beautiful sunset, besides feeling the soft Caribbean breeze; this landscape of contrast between sea, sand, mountains and coastal nature, where no one bothers you, there are no annoying noises and you just feel peace in your heart and soul. Getting away from the city to see this image with your own eyes is priceless. Let's take care of the environment, let's be good to the earth, let's take care of it, because there is no planet B.


Priceless indeed! Fully agreed! Thank you :)


Mount Lavinia,Sri Lanka
Honestly I fell in love with beaches since I visited this place. It's my first ever international trip and though I work whole day but when I visited it , I felt so relaxed as it removed my all tiredness. It's a perfect place for relaxing because view of nature is awesome and just want to stop time here.

Indeed, the beaches work their magic in that way! Thank you :)

Now here is an African sun at work singing a sunset serenade to all of us in here.
A shot that I took from our beach last night here in South Africa.
Tranquility at it's best.


Good luck to all entrants!

So poetically said! :)

Congratulations to all of the winners and the contestants!

What a brilliant way to see the world- until we can really get out there to see that amazing world, so thanks to @travelcontest for arranging this for us all!

Thank you! My pleasure and a big responsibility :D

Yes but well worht the effort for you and everyone else too!

So glad to see so many new contestants this edition.

I bought a new- proper camera, had it out for 1 day testing it last Tuesday and then have had nothing but severe weather- storms/rains/flooding since- so not an ounce of sunlight...🙄

Oh! Congrats on the new camera and I think the next theme will be "Autumn", thanks for the inspiration. There is beauty in the bad weather too, isn't it? :)


@travelcontest(1/3) gave you LUV | wallet | market | connect | <><

Sorry I missed out on the Autumn challenge and even though we are well into spring here, infact now summer, it keeps heading straight back to dead of winter at the drop of a hat...

I will get in with the next theme I promise!

Damn how could I have missed this one? Thank you so much!

It's never late to join the currently active contest :P
