Prasat Pre Rup in sunset light

Prasat Pre Rup in sunset light
Just some minutes before sunset we stopped to visit the grandiose temple premise of Pre Rup. Ideal light for capture this photo. Perhaps 3 or 4 hundred other visitors join to enjoy the colorful sunset.
Generally hundreds of macaques are other visitors who are romping around the historical walls and bricks.
The boldness of the architectural design of Pre Rup is superb and give the temple fine balance, scale and proportion. The temple is almost identical in style to the East Mebon, although it was built several yeas later. It is the last real 'temple-mountain ' Pre Rup was called the 'City of the East ' by Philippe Stern, a Frenchman who worked on the site.

Have a look to my photo I captured in 1996

Hallo Albert, danke - es freut mich, dass Dir meine Fotos gefallen. Bei uns ist Kambodscha vor der Haustüre und ich war schon viermal in Angkor. Es ist immer ein Besuch wert.
Ich wünsche Frohe Ostern und alles Gute Wolfgang
