Flowers in Ratanakiri Province, waiting to usher in the monsoons

Waiting for Rainy Season – រដូវ ភ្លៀង ជិត មក ដល់ ហើយ

It’s nearly the end of dry season here in Cambodia—I feel this shot has an season-appropriate feel, with the warm, yellow colour palette of the early Cambodian summer. Khmer New Years is just around the corner, ready to usher in the early, cooling rains as it has for thousands of years.
