The magic of light in amazing photosVika
Thai photographer Weerapong Chaipuck travels across Asia and takes amazing landscape photos. The author, enchanted by light, uses it masterfully. The play of light makes his pictures mysterious and unreal.
Some users, commenting on his work, write that it is 100% Photoshop. The photographer does not hide the fact that some images need a little processing. However, according to him, the amazing colors in his photographs are largely, and often 100 percent, due to nature.
Weerapong Chaipuck is patiently waiting for the "golden hours" - the time before and after sunrise and sunset when the palette of colors in the sky becomes very rich and spectacular. Each time, preparing for a new photoshoot, he carefully checks from what place and at what time it will be possible to catch the most amazing color range in the frame.
See and enjoy the magic of light from Asian landscapes.

“If you stay there at the right time, you will see fog enveloping the area and several volcanoes, including Merapi. The photo looks surreal, but it is 100 percent real. I used only the appropriate filter and worked on the colors to create a mystical mood ... ”- this is how the author writes about this photo.
4. A fisherman on the Li River in China.
The traditional way of catching fish with the help of birds - cormorants - is currently almost never used.
5. Fishermen on the Li River.
In China, cormorants have been used for fishing since time immemorial. Birds sit on the boat and, at the command of the fisherman, dive for fish, and the caught prey is then brought into the boat.
6. Surprisingly, cormorants will never sit in someone else's boat. They are lowered on ropes tied to rings that tie the bird's neck. Therefore, when birds grab prey, they cannot swallow it, and fishermen take it away. Each cormorant has its own number, which is used as a nickname. The birds know their numbers very well and when they hear it, they immediately rush into the water.
