Another bridge in Cambodia – From Kampong Cham to Kratie

We were still on our way from Kampong Cham to Kratie when we crossed this single-track bridge that spanned a river flowing into the Mekong River.  As the sun was beginning to set and the pace of life surrounding this bridge capable of producing good images, we decided to stop.

The sunsets in Cambodia can be quite vivid and in concert with the color of the iron-laden soil can be spectacular.  Even when shooting everyday scenes.

We ended up walking across this bridge, an act that turned out to be a bit dangerous as we ended up encountering a truck that was so wide, it passed without a couple of inches of my nose.  On the return walk across the bridge, we did so with dispatch.
