Sunrise at the Angkor Wat


I was in Cambodia last winter and shot the sunrise at the serene and majestic Angkor Wat, I definitely thought that many of the smaller and lesser known temples far exceeded the Angkor in elegance and beauty but then the Angkor was never about intricate beauty. Majesty and scale are its hallmarks.

Click on the image to see the picture in its actual size (2544 x 1696). If anyone is interested in the EXIF data, I will put that up too.

The Magnigicance(?) of an Indian King in a far off land, the apathy of civility to its own creation, the atrophy of Moral standards and Human Dignity in the face of the Khmer excesses.

Nice backdrop and subtle indicatiors to the insignifcance of the complex against the Greater but simpler entity.

Nice Pics Dilipa... Any Gallery of Pics?.
