[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Approaching 'Phnom Krom' at the edge of Tonle Sap. The water of this great fresh water lake go as far as eyes can see. My scenery pictures are inspired by 'Pablo Minto'. Thanks for all his nice landscape pictures.

'Tonle Sap'is around 14km from Siem Reap town. 'Tonle Sap'is the largest fresh water lake in south east asia. (some figures: the area of around 27,000sqkm.in dry season and 120,000sqkm.in rainy season, water depth varies with seasons 1-2m to 8-10m, around 3 million people or one quarter of Cambodia population live on this lake and its floodplain.)

Hello JC,
There is a "silvery" feeling to this landscape, the colours seem to have been muted as the light filters through the clouds!
An awesome effect indeed, and the composition is pleasant!
Well balanced and with a big sky, good foreground interest...
Amazed by your note telling about the difference in size throughout the year!

Hi Jitty!
Hehe, now it's time for Pablo to switch to insects macros! This landscape is beautiful, indeed, but please do not stop shooting your little fellows, because there is no other else as good as you to report of them from from Asia!

Hi Jitti,
A very nice scene here. Dramatic looking clouds add great texture to the sky. Very well composed and framed. Looks great!

Hi Jitti,
A beautiful moody photo. The subtle colors in the sky are beautiful I do feel that the bottom part of the photo is underexposed. But, it does give the image the moody feeling so it is actually OK. The silver reflection on the water part is perfect.
