Hello dear TL-friends,

The most famous building of the entire Angkor temple complex is this: Angkor Wat.

If you look around you see that the influence of the weather, the climate and the nature has many negative effects on this magnificent architectural wonders.

Hopefully there will be enough money from abroad for the necessary repairs to this wonder of the world.

Cambodia itself has not a penny.......!

Dramatic composition Adri. I like the low lights here with dramatic sky. The POV is also appealing to me. Nicely composed.

ciao adri

hello Adri

So, this is the place where you spend your New Year! I think you should be enjoying the visit although the weather may not be perfect for photography but the overcast sky is really quite striking over the temple and the reflection. Having seen many versions of this temple, I am sure you were standing next or among to many people at this spot?

I had planned to visit Angkor Wat in May2008 but forfeited my flight tickets when I had no-show due to personal reason. Or else I would appreciate your post even more after my own visit. I read the restoration work was done by team from China over the last several years.

tfs, bill

Hallo Adri,

Een compleet prachtige foto.
Mooi, de lucht, de reflexie, de kleuren, de compositie.
Kijk, en daar ben ik nou weer jaloers op. Ik moet daar nog maar zien te komen en wie weet maak jij dit, of volgende jaar ook zo'n mooie winter mee als wij nu gehad hebben! dus.....

Groetjes, Marga

Hi Adri! Angkor Wat has been photographed and shown on the Trek sites so often, images don't always get the credit they deserve - a viewer boredom factor can set it..."oh, that place again!"

But it's a view I could never tire of, and you've caught it pretty nicely here. The sky adds a nice heavy feel, a dramatic atmosphere fitting such a wonderfully impressive place. I like the inclusion of the lily-covered pool, it adds depth to the overall image and works well. Looking forward to seeing more :-)

Hallo Adri,
Een indrukwekkende opname,vooral met die dreigende zwarte lucht.
De foto is bijna een panorama en geeft een goede indruk van 'Angor Wat'.
t.f.s. en groet,

Ik zal het zo zeggen Adri...je had een beetje pech zonder zon,maar wat doen die wolken het mooi!!;]]
Je hebt je er prima uit gered Adri.


Mooi zo met die "drama" lucht. Het past er helemaal bij als ik je note lees. Moet een speciale plek zijn. En ook een speciale reis geweest zijn. Het is een mooi geheel met die reflectie en t frame. Goed gedaan.

Hi Adri
