Taking aerial photography over the temples of Angkor was one major item on the plan to our recent travel photography project to Cambodia.
We arrived in Siem Reap, the city close to the area of all major Angkor temple ruins, in the morning from December 9th. The plan was to take two flights. One in the evening and one in the morning.
A a first flight was planned to explore the landscape of the area, rice fields, landmarks, the wetlands along the Tonle Sap lake, floating villages and some remote temples.
The second flight brought us along the famous temples such as Angkor Wat in the morning sun.
One of my most exciting experiences as a photographer.
