Angkor Temples

Amazing! You could spend several days getting to all the temples. Built between the 9th and 12th century, the temples span across several miles. Many of the temples were damaged through wars over the years, but Angkor Wat itself is the most preserved. We didn't get to see it all, but saw plenty! I think I took about 500 pictures, so here's a few.

We were virtually the only ones at this particular temple. Out of nowhere, a tour group comes and Brett gets trapped quickly.

At the end of the day, taking final pictures of Angkor Wat across the moat.

Amy! These pictures are absolutely amazing. I thought the photos of New Zealand's coasts and waterways were beautiful, but these temples in Cambodia are awe-inspiring. And the way you photograph them is nothing short of spectacular. Really. I am truly impressed and want to visit Cambodia! I love being able to live vicariously through your lens. Can't wait to see more.
