Ta Prohm is one of the most imposing temples in Angkor and the one which is best merged with the jungle; hence it has been left as an example of the ‘natural state’ that is so marvelled by early explorers.
The trees growing out of the ruins are perhaps the most distinctive feature of Ta Prohm.
“Nature,” – wrote Aldous Huxley – “if you water and feed it too well with that strong tropical sun and rain, it will lose control…”

this is an original pov on this Ta Prohm site, with the inclusion of the 2 trees pointing towards the blue sky
I'll be there in 4 weeks, hope that I can do a few good ones as well

I do like this imaginatively composed shot,the upward view with the inclusion of the two trees,one naked and the other in leaf as well as the temple works very well for me.
Nice photography,well done.
Kind regards Les.

I like the angle you chose of the enormous trees that tell a different story for everyone, and we really can't stop nature of this huge size as if invading the privacy of the ancient temple. I really love the drama and perspective, and detail you have captured in natural colours. Impressive work, tfs

Hello dear May
A very original POV. Fine upward looking POV with the converging perspective at the top...I like the clear blue sky which forms a good backdrop to this picture...
