Shot with Canon EOS 5D Mark II + Canon 50mm f/1.8

I got up very early today in order to enjoy the sunrise from Wat Manchey, a temple nearby Kampong Cham, which is situated on a hill overlooking the Mekong. Due to the owner of my guesthouse sleeping in, I missed the sunrise but went nevertheless. I got to witness some of the monks morning procedures of the monks living in the temple, including the bathing.

The water is collected freshly from a well on the temple ground. This image made it worth getting up so early for me.
