Photographer's Note

I was debating whether I post this shot in TE., but then it’s one of my favourite shots of one of my favourite temples in Angkor.

It was about 5 o’clock when we reached Preah Khan (pronounced "PRAY KAHN") This temple is a large monastic complex, and the interesting part comes in that while one half is restored, the other half is ruined and appears "how it was found." In fact, most the temple was heavily damaged by art theft. The Hall of Dancers is named for eight lintels with dancing apsarasas.

I found the interplay of the evening sun on the stones to be captivating. The apsaras on the wall (some badly damaged) and the ruins under our feet create an amazing and nostalgic showcase of beauty
