Cambodia in 20 Instagram Photos

I’m currently hard at work sorting through the 4,000+ images I snapped during my visit to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. However, while the final “National Geographic Standard” shots are starting to go up on flickr (view them here) I’ve been posting Instagram edits taken during the trip. For those that follow my photography, for Instagram I post unique images, a blend of dSLR and iPhone 6 captured shots and/or HDR edits of the photos you’d see on flickr in a more true-to-life format. So, without further delay, here are 15 of my favorite Instagram shots from Cambodia.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous images! It looks like the trees are just swallowing up parts of the temples. Cambodia is definitely on our must-see travel list – some day! 🙂

    • It really does feel that way. The big temples have been cleared for trees, but there are a few great ones that are still heavily covered. On the one hand it’s bad I suppose since it means the trees are slowly eating away at the temples, on the other hand it is what makes Angkor look like Angkor!

  2. Wonderful images. Thanks for sharing them. It is such a beautiful country with amazing people. You captured it very well. I look forward to going there again after seeing these images.
