Angkor Wat sunrise (tourists galore)
These are snapshots of 2 popular places to watch/shoot it from. The first is in front of a pond. People like this spot because you can get the silhouette of the temple, with the reflection in the background.
The second is... umm... I guess for the lazy people who get past the first wall and say "this is good enough" haha.
I was walking among the crowds of happysnappers just listening to their conversations that all went something like "it looks so good in real life, but so terribly bad on my camera!!"
I wish I could offer a quick 10 minute photo lesson to all these people. My first tip would be- "Your little on camera flash goes all of about 10 feet (on a good day) so it's probably not going to make a difference on a stone structure that is not only 699 feet tall, but also several hundred feet away. Ya.
I love seeing monster truck shows too. Ever noticed when the truck jumps, camera flashes in the grandstands go off by the thousands. That would be an awesome collection of photos to see... Itty bitty monster trucks off in the distance, with several nuclear white bald heads in the next row, yes!!!
Enough ranting... tomorrow were going "on assignment" in Cambodia! More later... :)
