After recently spending some more time in Siem Reap, which is home to the hundreds of temples that make up the UNESCO World Heritage Angkor Wat complex, I was on the lookout for more of those hidden corners.
After visiting the temples on and off for the last 14 years one thing I have learnt is that all those hidden corners would take a lifetime to discover.
I am fascinated by the power of nature over humankind of which Angkor Wat displays this perfectly, whether it be the iconic roots of trees slowly ripping apart the temples
Or the Earth devouring fallen down temples returning them back to where they once came.
Angkor Wat never fails to surprise as you wander around feeling like a true Indiana Jones.
There is always a smile caught in time watching over you.
Siem reap and its surrounds are also ripe pickings for the travel photographer.
Near to Angkor Wat lies the largest lake in South East Asia, Tonle Sap home to floating villages.
Brightly coloured floating houses
In the past I have supported land mine clearance charities from sales of prints and cards at exhibitions of my Angkor Wat photography, as Cambodia was at one time one of the most landmined countries on Earth.
After befriending a resident of the floating villages on my latest trip, I will be donating rice to the floating school on Tonle Sap lake when we visit with my travel photography holiday guests, as there are many orphans there whose parents were killed by bad storms on the lake.
Cambodia is a place that truly touches the heart and the myriad temples of Angkor Wat never fail to leave you in wonder and awe at their sheer beauty.
Join me for a travel photography adventure to Cambodia; Angkor Wat, and its surrounds in November 2013 or November 2014 http://www.digitalphotographyholidays.com/388262/cambodia-angkor-wat/
