Reflections at Angkor Wat

Took this picture in the late afternoon while on my way to the Bayon in Angor, together with Kilted-Arab. We let the tuk-tuk driver stop at the border of the huge canal which surrounds the area of Angkor Wat.

The reflections looked stunning and that’s why I posted this picture. Hopefully you enjoy the view too!

Great control of the colours here, Hans - those greens are perfect and I love the reflections with the very slight ripple in the water. Good shot, very well balanced.

Pretty, quiet scene, super reflections. Maybe this could have been taken here in NZ, or in England, or even Holland - but no windmills!! Nicely captured Hans

I do enjoy it, Hans. But I'd enjoy it even better cropped even more panoramically, and without the border on the sides... IMO a scenery like this needs space on the edges. But hey, we know each other's view on frames, right?
I love the saturation and the stillness of the water, allowing it to actually mirror the trees.
Well spotted, TFS!
