Mailed to wherever you are tonight in The Fragrant Stratosphere.

A Place of Peace
Srah Srang is a Khmer-made lake, a water reservoir in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

There is also a Fragrant Legend about this place. A tale to be told shortly on The Fragrant Man.

  1. (Don’t enter me in the contest, but I’m inspired to reply). The gorgeous moody photo makes me think of Lamartine’s “The Lake”–which has nothing to do with the photo, I know:

    “May the wind that groans, the reed that sighs,
    may the soft scent of your fragrant air,
    may everything that is heard, seen or breathed
    all say: They loved!”

    Thanks for dropping by my blog. Great photo post card. Fragrance is too little appreciated and unlike photography, it is something that can’t be placed on the internet.

    • The www is a very appreciative place for both these modalities. But yes there are fragrant words on the net but not the scent despite the attempt this week by the Google Nose software launch on April 1. Click on, Victor.

  4. My caption is a quote by Jo Walton:
    “There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.”

    This photo was a reminder to me to take time to be inspired and moved by beauty.
