Beng Mealea Temple

original-Edit-copy-2

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Unlike many of the other Angkor temples, Beng Mealea (said to be the “blue-print” for Angkor Wat) has not been fortified or rehabilitated. This means getting in and around this, nearly one thousand year old temple, is a hands on activity. Piles of stone rubble litter the courtyard and lie haphazardly throughout the site. Vegetation runs amok! Gorgeous mosses cover large swaths of stone, and tiny saplings popping up from minuscule cracks, have turned into full-grown trees winding their way around and through the ancient ruins.

Sydney Reflections

Reflections of Sydney

Although Sydney is best known for its harbourfront and hubs of waterside life, the city’s ever evolving skyscrapers, provide spectacular skyline views.  Beautiful abstract compositions on glass and chrome were naturally enhanced by warm, golden hour light. Yep, I was lucky that night!

Barcelona Twilight

There’s an electricity along the  tree-lined pedestrian mall of La Rambla.  This vibrant  promenade cuts through the heart of Barcelona and is crowded until the wee hours of the morning.  ‘Looking-up’ helps to reduce the sensory overload and provides some of the more spectacular views of the city.
