Monkey Business at Bayan Temple

By | 2014-08-12T08:41:15+00:00 November 12th, 2012|20 Comments

Canon 5DMkIII, Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS, 1/350 sec at f/5.6, ISO 4000.

Yesterday we spent the afternoon at the Bayan Temple, and one of the first things I noticed was all of the little monkeys running around. They were prancing around the top of the wall surrounding the temple, so in order to get to them I climbed up a small structure close to the wall and they were perfect little models for me (well, some of the time). I didn’t stick around too long, though, since I was a bit worried one of them would jump over close to me and spook me off of the ledge I was standing on.

My favorite thing about this little guy in the front is how he’s sticking out his tongue … so cute!

    I follow you and +Brian Matiash pretty closely. I was particularly interested to see what kind of shots you come up with while you are in Cambodia. I think, its different from the style of photography that I am used to seeing from you. Do you think the photography here is more like photojournalism type rather than the beautiful typical landscapes. Is it hard to come up with some wonderful landscapes in this part of the world that would make people drool ?
