Sunrise on a cloudy July morning at Angkor Wat. The sun rises from behind Angkor Wat, which is facing west. And the first rays are supposed to bring on a golden shine to the temple. As always, the world's largest religious monument has something about it. Even on a cloudy morning, when the dramatic colors are a bit muted, the Angkor Wat is a beautiful and breath-taking view making the 4am wake up totally worth the effort.
