This edition of #RealCamerasRock features Manuel Riccio, a 24-year-old Italian photographer.
“I define myself as a passionate travel–landscape photographer. I’ve been in several countries between Europe, Asia as well as Oceania,” says Riccio. “In addition, I lived in Australia for two years. Moreover, my love for travel–landscape photography started two years ago when I was traveling in my car alone, in the Australian Outback, taking photos of the Milky Way and Ayers Rock.”
“This photo was taken in Cambodia at Angkor Wat, one of the largest religious monuments in the world. I call this photo Historical Sunrise Reflection. Angkor Wat is one of the most famous places in the world for a sunrise; even if you go at 4 a.m., it is full of photographers trying to get the best position in front of the temple for the ultimate reflection. In addition,when the sun goes up behind the temple, the view is amazing and the sky is this bright orange.”
Riccio captured this image with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and an EF 24–70mm f/2.8 lens, hand-holding the camera. Follow Manuel Riccio on Instagram, instagram.com/manuelricciophotography; Facebook, facebook.com/manuelricciophotographer; and also 500px, 500px.com/riccio_manuel.
