Boudhas de Sukhothai

Buddhas of Sukhothai

I was desperate since the beginning of my journey in Thailand to make a consistent serie of travel photos. It is the monsoon season and the sky heavily overcast gives a light flat and gray, not really an expected appearance of a tropical country. So no inspiration in Chiang Mai.

I switched to Sukhothai, the first capital of Siam from the 13th and 14th century.
The historic site is actually quite small and has few remains of palaces and temples. I strive to photograph only in portrait the Buddha statues, some gigantic . Their form and their eyes closed intrigue me. The neutrality of the light finally is perfect to translate the serenity of their expressions.

By sunset time , some raylignts are shining through the clouds giving a vibration that echoes with the spirit of these statues. they seem to have attained enlightenment.
