Views from the top of the mountain

It was rather cold and misty when I visited Doi Inthanon – the highest mountain in Thailand – in early November (08/11/2013).  The mists were swirling around the mountain near the top on the Kew Mae Pan Nature Trail, where these photographs were taken.

The mist (clouds!) were moving about and the scene changed from moment to moment.

When the sun came out the vegetation looked fresh and vibrant, albeit too early in the season for rhododendron flowers.

I am a retired entomologist with a background in quarantine pests and invasive invertebrates. I studied zoology at Imperial College (University of London) and did a PhD on the population dynamics of a cereal aphid (Metopolophium dirhodum) in the UK. I spent 5 years with the British Antarctic Survey studing cold hardiness of Antarctic invertebates and 17 years with the Food and Environment Research Agency. My main interests now are natural history, photography, painting and bird watching.
