Endless Frame Photography

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details

A piece of coral on a beach in Koh Tao, Thailand.

This is a photo I took in the early winter of 2012 during a 3 week trip from Bangkok down the eastern seaboard of Thailand. This was captured on the northern most and smallest island Koh Tao at sunset. Although I have posted this image before, I feel that it really embodies what this week’s photo challenge is about: getting lost in the details. Oh sure I took plenty of pics of the amazing sunset and the beautiful island beach (Sairee Beach), but like the post says you need to “work a little further into the scene.” In the brilliant golden hour light I was able to capture every tiny dimple on the skin of the long dead coral and every unique and misshapen grain of sand underneath it. Each has its own size shape and material, the details in the shot seem endless and it is truly easy to get lost in them.

Camera: Nikon D3100, 18-55mm lens
