This is a corner of the Angkor Wat temple at sunrise. Dave got up at 5:00 a.m. and set up his tripod to take sunrise photos with a very long, 20 - 30 second exposure to capture the color of sunrise when it was barely visible to the naked eye. While everyone else waited for sunrise photos at the entrance to the temple, Dave was able to walk around and capture this sunrise photo in a different location.
Angkor Wat is the most famous, but it is one of 400 temples in the area. There are many smaller temples such as this one.
The Angkor Thom temple complex includes a long wall that has carved elephants and carved Hindu gods.
We encountered this young boy riding his bicycle on a dirt road as we walked back from one of the temples.
Some of the temples have been reclaimed in part by the jungle, with giant banyon trees having dropped roots down onto the temples, and engulfing parts of them. Restoration and preservation efforts are underway, as eventually the trees will ruin the stonework.
