Lung Sin Waterhole - Kaeng Krachan was created by wildambience

Its surreal really, outstanding by surreal. its like an animal fest.

PS I will post some instructions on posting videos - the process is simple but not very simple to work out from the menu pull down which is quite confusing - it took me a few goes to master it.
