one of the seven wonders of the world...the LCD screen

so we all got up at 4am, bundled a picnic and the children into a tuk tuk and headed off to Angkor wat to see the sunrise. So did the rest of the planet and it was about 10 deep at the lake. To get any shot at all I had to improvise. I put the camera on the tripod extended the legs as far as they would go,then put the camera on a 2 sec delay, did a manual focus on the horizon, pressed the shutter and hoisted it up over the crowd, well almost all of it.

 

I guess I could have cropped out all the heads , but they kind of set the scene, which was anything but serene
