Angkor Wat Temple complex looks particularly beautiful silhouetted against the sun rising in the east. It’s worth waking early in the wee hours of the morning.

It is my sincere wish that visitors to my portfolio experience the beauty and wonder of nature. Moreover my hope is that my photographs will inspire viewers to be proactive toward the protection of wildlife and its habitat, those efforts ultimately making a far better world for all beings.

    Beautiful colours and reflections. Even I would get up early for that, I think.:)

  • Tee-hee, Ann! You make me laugh. Don’t worry, I’d be ringing you up and insisting you splash water on your face to wake up for the sunrise. Cheers! :-)))

    how magnificent, and yet also very imposing and rather awe inspiring….

  • Thank you, dear Wendy! There is also such an air of mystery to those aged ruins. Difficult to capture on a memory chip but the pervasive presence of the past positively percolates from that powerful place (I’m running out of more words beginning with a ‘P’). :-)))
