It was towards the end of our day at Angkor Wat when we finally reached Ta Prohm. Ta Prohm is a temple complex from the 12th century that has been overgrown by the jungle as the it had tried to reclaim the area.
I was simply amazed by the roots of the great trees that reached up high as the roots reached out wide. In this artwork of a cloister along the side of one of the Ta Prohm temples you can see the huge root of a nearby tree running along the base of the walkway, lifting it up this way and that way.
The jungle and it's encroachment, adds to the mystic of the place, it is at once beautiful as it is foreboding. You almost feel like you will see some of the temple areas fall in on itself as the trees continue their reclamation.
Being late afternoon, the sun was low enough to cast a wonderful glow of light on the uplifted stonework, adding a wonderful cast to the photograph.
This is a place I'd like to return to again, and spend more time photographing the wonderful ruins and imagine what it was like back in the day when it was in it's full glory!
