The Timelessness of Angkor Wat

    Newer Older

    Angkor Wat in Siem Riep (meaning, "The Defeat of the Siamese") is one of the best ancient sites to visit in the world. There are hardly any tourists, which I, for some jaded reason, despise as a rule. Also, the extreme heat and weather patterns of the area seemed to make for the most unusual sky configurations. I did my best to capture one of them here.

      I want to see it myself! Looks mysterious. But sometimes it seems that it's your camera that transforms everything into mystery!

      Best picture of AW I've ever seen. And that includes National Geographic and all the travel sites.

      Brilliant. I was there a few years back but did not use any HDR technique at the time, wish I did after seeing your photos.

      Wonderful composition! I love the mirrored reflection and soft blue-grey tones. Excellent shot, my dear friend!
