Chiefly the River Kwai Noi is known from the Pierre Boulle novel and David Lean film The Bridge on the River Kwai, in which Australian, Dutch and British prisoners of war were forced by the Japanese to construct two parallel bridges spanning the river as part of the Burma Railway, also called the Railway of Death. One bridge was wooden and temporary. The other was made of concrete and steel and still exists.
Actually this picture was Fujichrome color slides which I digitalized.

Hi Urs. Nice capture and nice work to bring it into the digital form. Excellent detail and good handling of light. Well composed also with the sweep of the river making a good compositional element. Thanks for sharing.
Have a good Sunday, Paul.

A peaceful mood by river Kwai these days!
I notice the settlement on the riverbank, resulting in a short way to food & water and what else do one need...
Fine colour reproduction and good details, post processing from film well done!

A wonderful, exotic landscape, once more in your beautiful gallery! Great composition and framing, many intersesting "details" like the boat and the huts and a beautiful curve of the river. Flawless light management and brilliant colours! Congratulations!

It is close to here I think where we stayed in the raft houses. Good POV on the bend in the river to make use of the wide curve in your composition. The little boat and traditional houses are great additions to the scene.

a curious landscape, it takes some second to understand that the houses were pending and not the shot!
Good shot indeed.
