Full moon raising over  Koh Phangan, this is the Supermoon of 2011...

This is the reason for much merriment and craziness once every month on Koh Phangan island in the Gulf of Thailand.

Tonight (19th) is the point where the moon is at its closest to the earth for the month, also known as perigee.

The weather takes a turn for the worse, in mid-March!!

After weeks of excellent local diving conditions, this late storm in mid-March 2011 threw a spanner in the works..!!

Long-Tail Boat

A traditional Thai Long-Tail boat (with a not so traditional engine on the back..)

Long-Tail boats are still used by local fisherman and operate as water taxis to reach some of the more isolated parts of Koh Phangan island such as Bottle Beach (Haad Gruad) and Thansadet.
