Angkor Wat at Dawn.

First view

There it was, that iconic sight in the pink dawn.

Would love to edit out the bottom of this photo. Just ignore it.

That is not my tablet !

The light got brighter, the subject clearer.

Daylight now.

Quite a lot of people gathered to watch the dawn

Look at that, a hot air balloon rising over the main gate.

I was getting carried away with camera angles. Like it ?

Definitely what I came for.

Managed to get all four towers but lost the light.

A very big and long Bas Relief

A tiny detail from very long Bas Relief

There were many Bas Reliefs. Don't worry I am not going to get all Bas Relief nerdy on you.

There were monkeys around and about.

There is a very big moat all the way round Angkor Wat.

Another view of the moat.

The main Gate into Angkor Wat complex, well one of four. Not designed for today's traffic.

  1. Wow! How amazing. Dawn looked spectacular. The only thing to spoil it all would be knowing that I am one of hundreds of people sitting watching it. I guess, from the rest of the photos, that once you started to move around the complex you could escape the crowds? Didn’t realise the water you see in photos was a moat, it’s huge! That is one enormous relief, was the whole length of that wall covered? Great Photos, Tim!

  2. Fabulous, you lucky, lucky chap. Hope you won’t go too spiritual on us now!
    Talk tomorrow, if I can persuade mother to get up in time. xx

  3. Wow! What a spectacular sight. I am sure as dawn broke it must have taken your breath away…keep your eye out for little Montessori treasures for the classroom, small boxes and the like. The children are still asking where you are but are stuck on Hong Kong! xx

    • Yes, it absolutely did take my breath away, not only to see it, but also that I was actually there, in the now. I am constantly on the look out for Montessori materials but apart from making the right choice the problem is carrying them. For no apparent reason my tiny bag seems to get heavier and heavier, I haven’t bought anything ! Why is that I wonder ? If I do eventually triumph I shall buy another bag to carry them. Quite pleased to have worked out how to reply to comments, quite a backlog.

  4. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this outstanding blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding
    your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will
    talk about this blog with my Facebook group.
    Talk soon!
