Photography is my passion. I do not only take wedding photos but also do portraits, landscapes, and street photography. This section represents my perspective on how I see the world through the lenses.

And so, the adventure begins.

"Did you forget sleeping time?"
I asked Wisanu right after I looked on the schedule.

"You can sleep while we are driving." Wisanu responded.
Just like what I expected from this trip. We just need enough sleep  to stay wake.

Thursday 21st, October 2017

10PM- We departed from DFW International Airport.
11PM- We arrived at Denver International Airport and met with the rest of the group, 8 people.
11:30PM- We got rental cars and headed out to Maroon Bell, (4.5 hours driving).
5:45AM- We arrived at Maroon Bell.
And the schedule went on until 11PM on Friday 22nd. That's the official sleeping time.

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.

This trip happened during the way back from the trip to Seattle. Wisanu and Kittithuch were trying to find a date to Colorado. People were adding into the group and some of them bought tickets. I wasn't sure at first but I did book the ticket. I'm not so sure how long I'll be in the state, so I'll make the most of it. I live my life.

Maroon Lake

We hit the road right away after we got the rental car. Wisanu drove the first shift heading Maroon Bells. Kittithuch and I were sleeping in the back seats. We were all tired.

The parking lot is packed and it was only 5.45 AM.

We came in time for the last two spots of the parking lot. Photographers came here early to get their spot for the Sunrise. I didn't see many people when I was walking into the Snowmass Lake but when I turned my head light on, all the photographers with tripods was there and ready for the sunrise.

 "We are lucky. There was no space when I came last year." Wisanu said.

 It was my first time coming to Aspen. I had no wonder why people and photographers love this place. It was freaking beautiful!

Kittithuch loves getting into water. Stream with mountain was is a perfect combination for his pictures. haha

Ashcroft Ghost Town

Ashcroft Ghost Town is the next stop. Aspen trees were beautiful but not reached the peak of their color yet. We had fun.

We headed back to the hotel to get our first official sleeping time. 

Certainly, traveling is more than the seeing of sight. It is the change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.
