Author: Matouš Vinš

Location: Chiang Mai, Thailand

About: Thai people celebrate Loi Krathong on the 12th full moon of the year. They launch “Krathongs” – small baskets with candles and incense sticks – on a river, canal or a pond, making a wish as they do so.
There is another festival during the same days in the north of Thailand called Yi Peng. In Chiang Mai there are thousands of big lanterns launched during the full moon night.

Equipment: Nikon D610 + 28 mm f/1.8, Sony A6000 + 18-50 mm
