p.1 #1 · Cambodia part XV


Last shots from Cambodia, this was shot while I had a 104 degree fever and suffering from Typhus. I had hiked in 3 days to Veal Thom grassland in Virachey national park. These were essentially the only shots taken on what was supposed to be a 7 day trek but in which I was evacuated on day 4 and had to trek 12hrs out, then 2hrs by boat and further 1.5hrs by motorbike. Then 9hrs by bus to Phnom Penh and two plane rides to Singapore hospital. It was a very tiring and unpleasant Christmas!







Thanks for looking and commenting,
Paul

Paul,

Sorry to hear how illness wrecked your last few days.

The shadows in the first one give a dramatic effect. This is quite different from the lively mood in the third. Unfortunately, the second one has little to recommend it, although I understand why you wanted to include it.

Unfortunately I had a lot of sensor dust and so stopping down wasn't really too much of an option otherwise I'd be cleaning and cloning for hours so the dof on image 2 isn't great but it's a perspective that I like and will probably attempt in the future, though the viper's don't seem to like to have me shooting it head on.

Thanks for the feedback Harold.

Beautiful images! I am sorry to hear about the illness, but I have to say that your trek to wellness is one that is very exiting. Trekking out, getting on a boat, motorcycles! You have a far more exiting life than I...for now...

Thanks Andrei and Julian. Yes I am currently well, just nursing a painful medical bill. The trek out while delirious certainly sounds adventurous on paper, though reality is an entirely different issue and I was jumping in the river every 1/2hr to cool down lest I overheat and lose consciousness. Then I froze on the motorbike and boat. I'm just glad I didn't have something more serious than Typhus.

Glad you're recovered
The first shot is my favourite stunning
Sound's like an amazing experience apart from the illness
