visiting Phuket you will no doubt see postcards of beautiful sunsets.
These were taken at Promthep Cape. Promthep Cape is located at the
southernmost point of Phuket Island and offers a spectacular view
of the sea and coastline. At sunset it becomes a very popular point
with hordes of tourists all descending on the same space in hopes
of capturing a beautiful sunset. Unfortunately we would not catch
a magnificent sunset, but it was still an enjoyable experience.

Cape is a small peninsula
that juts out into the water. On the ridge
are several palm trees which silhouette
when the Sun is setting
for the perfect place to take the picture. The diver's sign
for OK to let Anne know what I thought of the position
the perfect site selected from which to take my pictures Anne
and I positioned ourselves and began the long wait for the Sun
to actually set. While it wasn't a spectacular sunset (like you
see in the postcards) it was still descent and worth the trip
and the wait. Enjoy the pictures ...
