Sunrise at Angkor Wat Temple
As a travel landscape photographer, the sunrise at the Angkor Wat Temple is something I have always wanted to capture. I have never heard of their being a bad sunrise and the morning we made the trip to the temple at 4:45AM gave us a spectacular sky that made it impossible to take a bad photograph! The photo I am using for this highlight was taken on an iPhone. What the photograph doesn't show are the thousand tourists behind me that are also jockeying for the perfect spot to capture the sky, the temple, and the reflection but the experience is still worth the early morning and fighting the hoards of tourists plus you get an early start exploring the other nearby temples and beat the Cambodian heat!
