Sunrise at Angkor can be truly amazing, depending on the weather, the crowd and your ability to, you know… wake up at 4am.
What happened that morning was impressive, from the light and its colors, to the shape of the clouds, the reflections in the pounds, and all of it slowly moving, almost like a dance 🙂
This is definitely a must see.
For the sunrise shots and timelapse I took a tripod, the GM1 and extra batteries.
While getting to the famous location with the temple’s reflection, I had to stop for a few pictures.
When I see a pound like this, I can’t help myself, I have to take it 😉
This one was shot at around 10cm from the floor, so that the tree and the temple reflect in the water.
Here comes the timelapse
Hint : if you plan to go and watch Angkor’s sunrise, try to buy your ticket the day before. If you buy it after 5pm you can get in and see the sunset for free.
Other thing : when facing the temple, the right side pound was much less crowded. I think if you want the whole reflection thing but fear facing an army of tripods, you should try on that side.
