I’m really not good at getting up early but I figured it would be worth it to see the sunrise at Angkor Wat. After all, just how many people would be up and about at five-thirty in the morning?
And the answer is: several tour buses full of eager photographers…
This is the sunrise imprinted on a few hundred cameras that morning… More of the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Early Bird.
Holly cow, it was a traffic jam of photographers. A photon of photographers? A phalanx of photographers? 🙂
I had trouble finding a good spot to take photos from so I ended up taking photos of the photographers instead…
🙂 If everyone had done this, you could have had some sort of photographers’ infinity photo.
Phormidable phalanx, I would say, Janet!
My thoughts exactly Sue!
it was clearly worth it!
The combination of the view of Angkor Wat plus the view of photographers made it worth it!
I actually love the photos of the photographers – shows you what you don’t normally get to see without visiting a place!
Sometimes it seems that I spend a lot of time trying to get shots of places without all the tourists milling around in them, but in this case it was almost impossible so I just had to go with capturing that astonishing turnout at 5:30 in the morning!
I posted the same for this week’s challenge – my friend and I initially didn’t quite enjoy the moment because of the crowd but eventually we were glad we stayed as the photos came out well 😉
