Saphan Hin Park – Phuket, Thailand
Saphan Hin Park is a very good place for photographing, always can get a nice shot easily. The photo above not shot in the same day, but take it on different days and different timing, so I get a different screen of this park. At early morning with the breaking light, will feel the day are starting, new day with new hope and new challenge. You can get something was abandoned by human, also can get something valuable to continue life.
Bamboo Partition at Saphan Hin Park is use for separate the water discharge from river to the sea, intention do not contaminate sea water near by the bay. After generation to generation, Saphan Hin Park is a large scaled public park where local people come to relax and exercise while taking in the pleasant sea views. Located on the eastern edge of Phuket Town beside the sea shore.
There is a large monument at this park that was created in 1969 as a memorial to Captain Edward Thomas Miles, it’s shaped like a large drill bit, dedicated to the memory of Captain Edward Thomas Miles, the Australian who brought the first tin dredge to Phuket in 1909. The monument was built in 1969 on the occasion of 60th anniversary of tin dredging in Phuket. In former times Sapan Hin was regarded as the gateway of Phuket because the promontory was the chief trading port for freighters.
Saphan Hin is often used for festivals and events, including the culmination of the annual Vegetarian Festival, where the gods are given their send off at midnight on the last day of the festival. In the vicinity of the park are the city’s main public sports facilities including tennis and badminton courts, football pitches, as well as a large Olympic-size swimming pool. It is also the site of two colleges – Phuket Community College and Phuket Vocational College.
When the sea was getting low tide on the evening, can found many excavation workers here digging the ground of the ocean, try searching some valuable seafood to sell, maybe they can get oyster or maybe crab or mussel. I compose this shot with only one person, hope everybody will appreciate every meal you eat was not easy to get it.
