Evening Storm Approaches the Temple

This is an old temple near the main complex of Angkor Wat that sits high on a hill. At the bottom, a man gave me an option of riding an elephant to the top. I don't know why I didn't! I think I might have been in a hurry to see the sunset and the elephant looked old and ponderous.

 

It was a bit sketchy up there with the storm, but there was nothing metal so I didn't feel like there was much danger of lightning. I was used to Texas thunderstorms with big lightning, but maybe they didn't have those sorts in Cambodia - who knows? Not me. Anyway, it was too cool to stay up there and watch the storm as it rolled in...
