Sinking TempleSinking TempleRuins of Preah Kahn. Angkor, Cambodia. This is one of many images I took using a technique called HDR, or High Dynamic Range. It involves taking multiple frames of a subject at different exposures. These are then combined in the computer to capture the wide range of brightness levels that our eyes see, but could not be otherwise controlled in a single photo.

Devata DetailDevata DetailRuins of Preah Kahn. Angkor, Cambodia. This is one of thousands of sculptures carved into the stone walls all around Angkor. This is a devata, the Hindu term for deity. The temples at Angkor were originally Hindu before most of this part of the world became Buddhist and the temples were used by the Buddhists.
