Angkor Wat - Jim Wageman

Angkor Wat, one of the world's most famous and most visited historical sites, needs no introduction here. I had high hopes of capturing my own version of the iconic, clichéd image of the famed towers silhouetted against a magnificent, glowing sunrise. The weather had other ideas, as thickly overcast skies quashed any possibility of a glorious dawn. In the end, the times we spent at what had been anticipated as the focal point of our visit to Siem Reap were limited, as sweltering heat and the seemingly endless swarms of tour buses bringing other visitors made visits to other temples look more and more appealing. The clichéd image will have to wait for another time.
