Photo of the Week: Sunrise

IMG_4770Siem Reap, Cambodia

This picture was taken in the early morning at Angkor Wat.  We sat, along with hundreds of other photo aficionados, patiently waiting for the sun to peak out from the dark horizon. As the sun rose over the the ancient empire, the rich colors layered on top of each other creating an effect like the sky and the water were on fire. We were rewarded with this beautiful, unforgettable sight.

Photo of the Week: Bygone times

A walk through the past.Siem Reap, Cambodia

This photo of 3 Buddhist monks strolling through the Bayon Angkor Thom in Cambodia brings to mind images of a bygone time and a bygone empire. Bayon is one of the many temples in Angkor we’ve visited while we were in Siem Reap province.   The Bayon’s most distinctive feature is the multitude of serene and massive stone faces on the many towers. Angkor is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
