Cambodia - Angkor Thom by lux69aeterna Cambodia - Angkor Thom by lux69aeterna
This photograph was taken at the entrance of Angkor Thom near the city Siem Reap, Cambodia. On most gates there is a row of 54 demons on one side and 54 Gods on the other. It's a motif taken from the story of the "Churning of the ocean of milk".

The city of Angkor Thom (Great Angkor or Great City) has an epic scale of 10 km˛ and was built by Angkor's greatest king, Jayavarman VII (1181-1219). At the city's height it may have supported a population of one million people in the surrounding region.

Nikon D300, Nikon 50mm 1.8, tripod.

I wanted to add a picture to my favorites of Angkor Wat because I just recently went there. Yours really caught my eye. It's beautiful the way you placed the landscape, the moat, and the statue all together in one stunning photograph. The colors are not too bright yet they contrast quite nicely with the shadows. Stunning really.

i love the soft sunset in the background and to me the statue seems to be looking out to the river
the tree silhouettes together with the whole photo makes it beautiful
