Colours of sunrise - Angkor Wat

I am not the sunrise variety and neither is the husband..but we were told that the sunrises at Angkor Wat should not be missed. So we woke up at 4 am and drove through the forests in the dark on our tuk tuk ..The winds were nippy and the setting surreal. But then, came the mosquitoes followed by hordes and hordes of people ..I didnt know which was annoying ; but then the sun kept its date with us and we forgot the rest. We were there twice - the first time around, it was so difficult to get close to the moat and hence we could just take only the towers against the dawn.



The second one was a spectacular sunrise, but I wasnt able to handle the crowds. The husband however, took the camera and took this picture just for me..He hates crowds and is barely interested in photography, but then the pictures were rather good, I think..what do you guys say ?
