Sunset over Kompong Cham

Sunset over Kompong Cham city from the Kizuna Bridge
Two sunset views over Kompong Cham, taken on successive nights this past weekend. The top photo was taken from the Kizuna Bridge with Kompong Cham city at the edge of the Mekong River in the foreground. The bridge was certainly a popular spot for courting couples to come and watch the sunset together and the east bank of the river gives you a good view as the sun sets behind the city. The second photo was taken from the old disused airfield west of the city and looking towards Phnom Pros and Phnom Srei. The airfield is now used as a shortcut by cars and motos alike and off to the north of the massive runway is an army post on top of a small rise, giving you a great view over the surrounding countryside. It was also the site for a impromptu picnic by four French tourists, whose clinking of wine glasses was the only sound I heard besides the occasional bird-call.

Another sunset, this time over Kompong Cham province from the disused airfield
