The temple of Angkor Wat at sunrise.
Angkor Wat has been in constant use since it was built about 900 years ago.
There must have been well over over a thousand tourists waiting to see dawn at this spot but after it started to get lighter none of them waited the extra half hour to see the sun actually rise above the temple itself.
I use a really great bit of photography software on my smartphone called TPE (The Photographers Ephemeris) and it told me exactly where the sun would rise behind Angkor Watt and at what time.
