Sunrise at Angkor Wat, Cambodia

I stick to my rhythm with this image of the sunrise in Angkor Wat. Technically, this is after the sunrise, but it has a very early morning atmosphere for me. The scene appears to be serene, but hundreds of tourists are already around me and in the temple. You have to be up very early to be in time for the sunrise at the temple. You literally walk through the dark to get to the standard spot for the sunrise.  I got my pictures there as everyone else, but loved the atmosphere of this so much more than of the actual sunrise.

Yesterday’s blog post was about the sunrise in Rio. Today from the same assignment a shot during sunset at Santa Teresa. I only had a glimpse at this sunset, but still remember the atmosphere and heat of the day. Again, I shot this with the Fuji x100s.

Today’s post is from a business assignment in Rio, Brazil. I used to get up quite early for breakfast and my morning run. The Copacabana beach is normally busy and hectic, but early in the morning you can capture some sense of tranquility, though moments after I shot this picture it started to change.

Most of my personal images during this assignment I shot with the Fuji x100s. It is still my favourite camera to take with for personal trips.
