Across the isthmus from Loh Dalam Bay on Koh Phi Phi Don is Ton Sai Bay. The water here is deeper so has a richer blue color when viewed from a height and a more vivid aqua color when viewed from the beach. This image was more of a stretch so it’s on the soft side but has almost a painterly feel to it. It’s again taken from the lookout point on the eastern part of the island looking pretty much south-west. The larger boat is almost certainly a dive boat heading off to one of the many dive locations around here while the two long-tail boats are headed out to one of the other beaches, possibly Maya Bay on Koh Phi Phi Ley or one of the other bays on either of the islands. that was basically a day trip. Head out in the morning with a sack lunch and sunbathe, swim, snorkel or dive then head back to the accommodation in the evening. I’ve not been there now in over 20 years so, even with the Tsunami, I’m thinking it’s maybe more commercial now that it was.

Richard Davis – Photographer
Richard Davis is an International Photographer based in Katy, Texas. Katy, a former rice farming community and oilfield, is now more commonly viewed as a suburb 25 miles west of Houston.
Originally from Swindon in England, from an early age Richard wanted to travel. With a degree in Geophysics, he entered the oil exploration industry which, over the next 11 years, took him to live and work in Libya, South Africa, Brunei, Libya (again), Tunisia, Dubai, and Oman.
A change of track then brought him to the United States to lead a hazardous waste remediation project and that led into an IT Management career. While in Houston he met and married his wife, Karen. Richard's IT Management career took them to Paris, France, where they lived for two years before returning to Houston in early 2000.
In addition to his library of slide and print images from around the world, Richard went fully digital in 2006 when Canon introduced the EOS 5D and has continued to extend his digital image library. He uses a range of cameras but his current favorite remains the Canon EOS 5D Mk II.
Richard takes on a broad range of subjects and his images have appeared in corporate publications, local magazines and various web sites.
Richard lives with his wife Karen, of Karen Davis Design, and their two children (and 3 fish).
