Sua Prat at night – Siem Reap, Cambodia

There were quite the New Year’s goings on this evening within the walls of the old city of Angkor Thom. I didn’t feel like shouldering a tripod on our moto, so I spun the ISO knob and rocked the handheld, like a novice. It was only my second time to see the temples lit up […]

hilltribe farm in northeast Cambodia

the winding road

The thatched hut of an ethnic minority farmer clings to the hillside of a cassava farm. This is Northeast Cambodia as it is today: the wild allure of virgin forrest replaced by a beauty more uniform, more cultivated, more agrarian.

Monsoons over the Rice Paddy

Monsoons in the Low Country

I’ve spent lots of time in the South of Cambodia over the last few weeks. Life is so different down there compared to the rolling hills of Ratanakiri. Endless rice fields and sugar palms as far as the eye can see, big white cows with humps on their shoulders, haystacks, and stately old wooden houses […]

Old tower in Kampong Cham, Cambodia

French Colonial Watchtower – Kampong Cham, Cambodia

This tower was built by the French in the early 1900′s to guard the river, presumably against invaders or pirates. It’s fascinated me ever since I was in high school. We first drove through Kampong Cham in 2001, and I couldn’t get over how stately and old-world the tower looked, perched on the edge of […]

Kata Noi beach in Phuket

Red Sun Falling

We liked this beach. Not a ton of tourists, some random surfers, and decent enough waves to bodysurf. It was also right around the corner from our little hotel. There was a pretty stiff undertow though, which made me think twice about swimming… not all cool. I thought this shot turned out pretty well considering […]

Evening in Kratie

Sunset over the Mekong river. Just shot this about 10 minutes ago, off of my hotel balcony in Kratie. Back in 2006 when I was traveling through Kracheh, I actually took a photo from this exact spot (same river, same hotel, same balcony), and posted it to Flickr. It was one of my earliest photos, […]

Paraglider off the Phuket coast

Paraglider off the coast of Phuket

I wish I could say that was me…..   While we were scooting around Phuket on a rented Honda Click, we stopped at this lookout point to snap some pics. This guy was out, drifting gently off the coast. At times he struggled, but later I saw him hundreds of feet up, sailing over the […]

Phi phi island in Phuket

Paradise

The Andaman sea is paradise. They filmed The Beach right around the corner from here. Just look at that water. ‘Nuff said. Please feel free to share my images—they are meant to be seen! Use them for your non-profit, on your blog, for fun and the like, but please link to www.ethancrowley.com and give credit […]

Hippies in Phuket

Hippies in Phuket

Maybe it’s possible to find good, old-fashioned hippies just about anywhere—but I was slightly surprised to find a contingent in Phuket. Sure, one might expect an encounter with quantities of beach bums, or a stray loafer with dreads and a surfboard, but I thought the hippie lifestyle went out of vogue years ago. This particular […]
