Angkor Thom Temple - Siem Reap, Cambodia

 This week’s Photo Friday (#FriFotos on Twitter) theme is REFLECTIONS.  In late October 2007, Chris and I traveled to Siem Reap, Cambodia to see Angkor Wat and many of the other temples nearby.  Pictured above is Angkor Thom Temple, with its reflection in the pool.

Gorgeous shot – This temple looks amazing. Haven’t been to that part of the world yet, but looking forward to seeing places like Siem Reap.

Siem Reap has a lot of intricate temples that are almost as if they were made for photography. A truly remarkable shot! I love how the sky is also reflected on the water.

Thanks everyone for the comments! This was one of my favorite temples. You can’t see it in the photo because the temple is a little too far away and there is some erosion (and possibly the light was not the best), but there is a carved face on each of the temple spires.

Ooh, I love this. We never made it out to Angkor Thom, but loved Ta Prohm.
