n the heart of Luang Prabang, Laos, I framed a picture that encapsulated the city's regal charm. The Royal Palace, resplendent in gold, white, and green, graced the left corner of the composition. On the upper right, a vibrant purple-flowering tree burst forth in full bloom, adding a burst of vivid color to the scene. The skies above played a delightful game of contrasts, with patches of fluffy white clouds against the backdrop of cerulean blue. It was a moment when history met nature in a harmonious dance, and I was fortunate to capture this majestic vista in a single frame. Photo © copyright by Rich Voninski.
