Silhouette of Angkor Wat

Silhouette d’Angkor

Photograph is a picture painted by the sun without instruction in art – Ambrose Bierce.

The sunrise across the northern reflexion pond is a popular tourist attraction. As the sun peaks through the limbs of the Cambodian jungle, the silhouette of Angkor Wat becomes apparent. Once the sunbeams breach the jungle canopy, they illuminate the temple’s red, pink, and salmon-colored sandstone.
