The World Heritage Centre at the UNESCO website describes Angkor in the following way:

‘Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia. Stretching over some 400 km2, including forested area, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. They include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations. UNESCO has set up a wide-ranging program to safeguard this symbolic site and its surroundings.’

I have always been interested in photography as anย art form for I admire the skills needed to take a great photo. So, with the guidance of an able photographer and guide from Angkor Photography Tours (http://www.angkorphotographytours.com), I learned how to properly use my camera.

In less than three days, I took close to 1,300 images and I wish I could show them all to you. With great difficulty, I chose the following to share here. Gallery 1 is what I call the ‘quality’ photos. Gallery 2 is what I call ‘story’ photos. These are the ones that all have a story behind them. In my next post, I’ll share these stories. For now, enjoy the photos.

  1. Oh yes! It’s always nice to put a face to a name. Lovely.

  2. Hi Aneeta,
    All I can say is “Wow!”
    I think these are all exceptional photos. I do hope you put them up on photosharing sites like Bigstock so that others can benefit from them and you can make some passive income.
    It’s difficult for me to pick a favorite since they are all so brilliant but if I had to, it would be Bayon.
    All the best on your new career. Great start.

  3. Aneeta,
    The photos are wonderful. As an avid photographer myself, I enjoyed them and wanted more. I’ve emailed them to a friend who I know would enjoy them too.

    (On a personal note, I particularly loved the one of you.)
    Warm regards,
