Alms Round on the River

Monks Collecting Alms by Boat

I love taking pictures of the alms round in Thailand in the early morning light. It’s always a challenge to get a good picture as they come out of the temple just as dawn is breaking and it’s still a bit dark. Even more challenging are the alms rounds that are done by boat like this one. You don’t see it too often these days. Mainly during festivals. This one was to mark the end of the Buddhist Lent in Lat Krabang when over 100 monks from 26 temples came out by boat to collect alms from local people.
