Last week’s blog highlighted the beautiful and very friendly people of Cambodia and now for the second half, I want to highlight some of the landscape and action scenes that I saw.
As I was flying into the country, I was really impressed to see the water, sun reflections and boat traffic. To me, this really stressed the importance of water to the people of Cambodia, as seen in the next 3 pictures. Swimming, washing, fishing, all done in the streams, ponds and lakes and throughout Cambodia!
Before heading to Cambodia, I heard about the famous bats of Battambang and their nightly feeding session so I made sure to catch the event. Fortunately I was warned about not being under their departing path (as it made for a nasty surprise) so I climbed up the side of the mountain and captured them at eye level. I like the abstract nature of this shot!
Our final destionation was Angkor Wat and when we arrived, we weren’t disappointed. The immensity and amazing workmanship of the place was a marvel. The attention to detail was evident everywhere you looked.
And of course I have to add a couple pictures of the ever present Monks. It was always great to see them with their bright orange robes contrasting with the aged Temples.
That is a wrap on the Cambodia experience. Truly a memorable bike/photo trip with some great friends. If you get a chance, definitely try and visit, you won’t be disappointed.
