Sunrise at Angkor Wat

One of things I was most excited about seeing on this trip was the temple complex of Angkor in Cambodia. It is an area of several hundred square kilometers filled with over 150 ancient temples in various stages of decay, the most famous and well-preserved being Angkor Wat. On our first day in Siem Reap, the nearby town, Karen and I rose before dawn to see the sunrise over the iconic silhoutte of of that temple. It did not disappoint...

We weren't the only ones so transfixed (See below). However, the small crowd was hushed by the beauty of the sunrise, and dispersed after the colors changed to daylight.
