Temples of Angkor
« on: December 09, 2012, 03:50:11 AM »
Went up there earlier this week to get some photos for an article I am writing. Hope you like this one. There are a couple of spots inside the temple walls where to take the famous pictures, either early morning catching the silhouette or like this in the afternoon when the sun provides a beautiful warm light. This one is taken slightly too early, around 4 in the afternoon. You can't be too late either, because then the shadows from the walls behind this spot will likely start to interfere with the shot.

Its too bad that the green construction tent ruins the shot.

Very nice.

I went there in 1999 and at the time I was shooting film.  I got a lot of good photos but I would like to go back sometime and shoot digital.

I had a great time, it was an incredible place to visit.

was there in 2010 and the green tent was there then as well in the same place. hope they're moving slowly and carefully, since obviously they aren't moving quickly!

Thanks guys. Yes the renovation is taking its time, it's going on at many of the temples. I did manage to get a few clean shots at the neqrby Bayon.  Interesting on the pic from 2007. The tree to the right is gone now.

Adam, you should get back. It's very different nowadays. Siem Reap has grown into a very nice town with a lot of nice restaurants etc.
