Photographer's Note

Ta Prom is a ruined temple not far from Angkor Wat. The temple was built in the late 12th century and then abandoned with the fall of the Khmer empire in the 17th century. This temples shows how most of the extensive Angkor complex appeared before restoration works commenced in the 20th century. Its an eerie and beautiful place. This section of the temple complex appeared in the movie Tomb Raider. In the workshop is a mosaic of six shots showing the giant strangle fig that sits above this mass of roots. Its just a wonderful place to sit and contemplate the engineering and architecture of the temple and the power nature. Go and see it for yourself, you will not regret it.
