Hello my dear fellow steemians,
today I'd like to share this photo with you. In January, I traveled to Siem Reap, Cambodia. Apparently, there is only a few structures you can see from space and Angkor Wat Temple sites is one of them. (others are Chinese wall, etc) . Correct me if I am wrong, but there are 2500 temples belonging to this particular dynasty located between Cambodia and Laos. I rented I Tuk Tuk for three days and visited about a dozen of those temples. My driver, the best dude ever showed me around and gave me all the time in the world to really enjoy the sites. I spent up to three hours in each temple to do my photography and take it all in. A just extraordinary place! This particular temple was mostly ruin but bits and pieces are still the way they used to be. People were sweeping the floor so these clouds of dust went through the picture. It provides the scenery with a certain ancient drama ;) I submit this photo into today's #architecturalphotography photocontest by @juliank

Angkor (siem Reap) is one of the interesting places of the world.
We were in cambodia and vietnam last year.
Incredible!

It sure is. I wish I had a guide who told me more about it. And a drone ^^

Siem Reap is an amazing place to visit. Most of these temples, when rediscovered were totally covered in trees and bush. Great photo by the way
