Sunset.

The humble sunset. Probably one of the most beautiful, most photographed phenomenon’s the world over. Is it possible to get sick of those ever changing mystical colours as they slowly paint the sky?

I am forever taking photos of sunsets. They are all similar yet they are all so vastly different. These were taken on the inlet by my parents house. Only in the month’s of May and September does the sun set in the perfect position for us to capture it, although it does its best the rest of the year too.

Shades of Angkor

Inspired by a fellow blogger over at retireediary I decided to dig up some of my old photos of Cambodia. Despite having not been there in five years, Cambodia is still one of my favourite countries in the world. I loved everything about it, the scenery, the food, the simplicity, and especially the people. They were warm, welcoming and very accommodating. These photos were taken on my basic point-and-shoot that I had at the time, I have tried to enhance them where I could.

I am currently sponsoring a child over in Phnom Penh, and I can’t wait for the day when I have enough time and money to travel over there and meet her.

The above photograph is of sunrise at Angkor Wat. You can see the scaffolding where they were working on repairs to the temple.
