Under the mountain

My favourite time of day is sunset in Cambodia, particularly so if I am in the provinces. The landscape, which holds such variation in colour already, decides to reflect back the sky's changing colour from the water logged paddy fields like a scaly, iridescent patchwork quilt. Then finally, night starts winning.

These photos were taken from a moving car as we traveled deep into remote Pursat. We were on our way to a once poor village, booming now due to new logging industry from the virgin jungle that crouches, waiting, up the mountain behind.  If you like, have a look at each photo by opening them in a new tab - the sunset-scapes feel painterly.  The moving car contributes to the feeling of brush strokes, and the sky is smudged with grey.
