The ultra famous Angkor Wat at sunrise. I was not the only one with the idea of shooting the sunrise, check this out ).
This is my second visit to Angkor, the first time I travelled as backpacker back in 1997 and I had a lot of adventures (read note of this photo). This time I travelled with wife, toddler daughter and baby daughter, plus my 70’s year old parents. Another kind of adventures, for sure!
Still happy that wife and parents enjoyed this place (it was first time for them), but I guess I will have to go again in the future with my grown up daughters for them to enjoy. I just hope Angkor will be still standing (or will be still open to public).
I recommend you go now before is too late

Wonderful dark colours brought together in a well chosen composition, a lot of atmosphere. And yes, except for the tourists, but what can you do ?

that brings back a few memories...You've captured a really good atmosphere here, choosing to focus on one single 'tower'. The tourists give a sense of scale but if they're really bothering you, they could easily by photoshoped away, don't you think? Anyhow, well done!
PS: did you use a filter of some sort?

I like the vertical format here and the burning sun !
I enjoy this view a lot, I was there during the monsoon so I cannot see a such sunset.
Unfortunately a crowded place like every touristic place...

Hi Jorge, Of course, everyone wants to have a photo of sunrise in Angkor. I also got up very early in the morning to make some. But your photo is quite original, we do not see all the structure but only one tower and the sun fits so perfectly. Well chosen POV. Excellent composition with palms.
So this time you travelled with a big family. For your parents it was a very far journey!
Have a nice day

Its very challenging and difficult task, and u have produced such a pleasing, artistic and satisfying result bearing in mind the constraints such timing, crowd and rising sun that you have undergone. In this situation, timing and of course experience and skill is vital. I admire your quality. Congrats for this fine job. Simply awesome. TFS
