Secret Entrance

Secret Entrance

This is one of the smaller ruins at the Angkor Wat area in Cambodia. Unfortunately, I didn’t keeping any notes on the names of the various ruins I got to explore. The secret entrance is visible in the wall near the left side of the photo. It is the strangest little door in the wall. The best game to play when exploring the ruins is to imagine what the various rooms were used for and who used them. Some of the rooms are so small that its makes no sense why they are there.

This image is an HDR created in Aurora HDR Pro. Tweaked in Lightroom and Photoshop. The sky near the top center is a composite from a photo that I took in Laos, but the original sky was just blank so I added the texture to keep the image a bit more interesting. Im glad I made that change as it modified the entire feel of the image.


I’m excited to notify everyone that in the next week my Adobe affiliate status should be approved. This means that I will be able to sell Adobe products on the Pixelbip Store. I’m pretty excited about this. I would not be able to do what I do without using Lightroom and Photoshop. I also am using Premiere Pro a lot more as I increase my video editing skillz.

My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
