Angkor Wat

The ancient Angkorian King's promenade

The King’s Promenade at Angkor

An ancient, raised promenade for the Angkorian king, connecting the palace area to the king’s personal temple. This photo belies the actual size of the temple…. it’s huge! And tall. My wife and I snuck up at sunset, after having sorta gotten permission from the guard. It was quiet, deserted and breathtaking from the top, […]

Mysterious Passageway at Bayon Temple, Cambodia

Secret Passageway

A deserted, nearly thousand-year-old passage at Bayon. At the end of this passage was a cool, dark, stone chamber with a carved stone buddha. Some incense was quietly smoldering at its feet, a worshipful attempt to ease some ancestor’s passing into the next life. I missed an upload yesterday because of lack of electricity. It’s […]

Jammin in the Hammock at Beng Melea

Jammin’ in our ENO Hammock at Bung Melea – ដេច អង្រឹង នៅ ប្រាសាទ បឹង មាលា។

I submitted this image to ENO Hammocks again for their monthly photo conest. ENO makes the strongest, lightest, post portable hammocks in the world. I’m absolutely in love with mine! Here’s last month’s submission, which failed to win anything…. So we shot this at the ancient Cambodian temple ruin of Beng Melea. It’s out in […]



Day and night meet….fleeting, mysterious, undisturbed… dawn breaks at Angkor. Part of the breathtaking morning experience watching the sunrise at Angkor Wat, as the stars slipped away one by one as sun slowly unveiled the temple, as it had every morning for a thousand years

Dugout Canoe being paddled across the moat at Angkor.

A dugout canoe ride across Angkor Wat’s Moat! ជិះទូកនៅាង្គរវត្ត។

This last trip to Angkor, I noticed this boat in the moat that surrounds the ancient temple. Some workers were using it to repair the causeway. I struck up a conversation with them, and was able to talk my way into getting a free boat ride in the moat! A once-in-a-lifetime experience. It was surreal, […]

Roots on the Ancient Temple of Ta Prom

Of Roots and Sandstone….. ឬសដើមឈើនៅប្រាសាទតាព្រហ្ម

Sounds almost like a band name. Probably a lame, wannabe indie band. Anyway, Ta Prom never seems to get old (no pun intended). On this last trip, we got up before 5 to drink in the predawn light and experience the sunrise, as it individually transformed each stone it touched. There was a nest of […]

Old Bonsai-style tree at Angkor Wat

The Jungle-Enshrouded Temple

I thought this tree’s shape was very interesting, as I peered through it at Angkor Wat. I love old, spreading trees. I nearly had to fight off a couple dozen monkeys, but I guess the fact that I didn’t have food to offer them pushed them away into the trees.

Angel sculpture at Angkor Wat Cambodia


The carvings at Angkor Wat are incredibly intricate, especially considering they’re hundreds of years old. I’ve always been amazed at stone sculpture. How in the world does an artisan accomplish that with a chisels and hammer? It’s unbelievable. See some of my other photos from Angkor Wat.

Road entering the Ancient city of Angkor Thom.

One can imagine it as it once was; opulent, majestic, dignified, the gateway into a kingdom of spectacular wealth and power. Angkor Thom, Cambodia
