Tonle Sap Lake Gallery Available

Finally after almost two months, I have completed editing and post processing all the photographs from our early November trip to Cambodia.

The first of the photography galleries related to the trip is now available for viewing:

The gallery contains 28 selected photos of many more available documenting life on Southeast Asia's largest freshwater lake, Tonle Sap.

At this time of year the water flow reverses and the lake feeds the mighty Mekong River.  Along with water entering into the Mekong, Tonle Sap also releases the bounty of fish that it had nourished and supported during the rainy season.  At this time, many of the homes in villages such as Kampong Khleang are surrounded by the waters that have increased the average depth of the lake from 6 feet to 30 feet deep.

Life in the villages is based upon the annual rise and fall of the lake levels.
