So often, coming from Australia, where love of the water is the national religion, one is perplexed by the fear of water shown by the majority in tropical Thailand.

Note : This photo was taken late in the day with cloud obscuring the sun and so the beautiful  colour of the blue-green water contrasted against the red cliffs can not be seen.
