Photographer's Note

The moment of truth is now. When the khom loy (sky lantern made of paper and propelled to the sky by hot air from the burning fuel) lifts up. The faces say it all.

During the Loy Krathong festival (25th to 26th November... depends on the full moon period), Tha Phae Gate of the old fort city of Chiang Mai is one of the happening place to release the khom loys or watch people doing it.

People will write their wish on the khom loy and release the lantern to fly up to the sky hoping their wish will come true. This couple obviously have love on their mind.
