This is my favourite photo of the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh at night. It was taken with my trusty point-and-shoot camera while my husband and I were enjoying  the night river cruise.

The lights decorating the Royal Palace creates a golden (almost embossed) outline of the building amidst the blackness of the night. It was a fantastic sight, almost like something magical and surreal you read about in many fairy tales.

  3. The night shot of the Royal Palace took my breath away. The night cruise must have been wonderful.

    Regarding your question on my blog, I was told dark spots were disease caused by fungus. When I found black spots, I bought fungicide and sprayed it. When you find dark spots, you can make it under control to some extent, but it’s a little too late. I was told preventive measures are the most important. Take care of your roses and have happy days ahead.

    • Hi Yoko, it was a wonderful night river cruise. The Royal Palace looks like a jewel from the other side of the river!
      About the dark spots, I cannot find a “safe” fungicide here so what I do is just cut off the leaves that have dark spots.

  4. Looks like something out of a fairytale.
