Photographs of the Sangkar River, Cambodia. Part 3 – landscapes

We’ll round up our series on Western Cambodia’s Sangkar River with a selection of landscapes of the highly picturesque river. Do feel that photos, or at least our photos, don’t really do the scenery justice though. It’s not like trying to capture a beach, mountain or say sunset – these are such broad vistas and wide landscapes; marshes and waterscapes stretch off to the horizon in every direction and even the skies seem bigger here!

A wide angle helps!

Anyway here’s some of our efforts but ideally you should check it out for yourselves!?
