reflecting monk and the majestic temple (explored)

It was the last day of our trip and almost the last hour before night fall and I couldn't catch even one monk in all this time. I was getting kind of restless because even before I reached Angkor Wat, I was kind of visualizing monks around the temples and I was so looking forward to taking a few shots of them.

 

It was in this last hour that I finally was able to see this monk walking along the corridors and I was thrilled to see this sight. I quickly changed into my 55-200 lens because I was quite far away from this setting. Thankfully, I could get not just the monk but also his reflection with the majestic temple in the background. The setting was "almost" perfect and very much like how I visualized. I waited excitedly to see if the monk is going to walk through the fabulous corridor but that wasn't going to happen. Anyway, I was still happy to get this one.

 

Thanks again for your visit and comments. Appreciate you wonderful support, as always!
