A second photo from the 900 year old and well preserved Angkor Wat taken in one of the upper courtyards reached by very steep sooden stairs. Lots don't climb the stairs including large tour groups, lots of people who think they are too steep and those refused entry as they have ignored rules listed everywhere saying "no shorts shorter than the knee, no sleeveless shirts or blouses etc".
The lower numbers meant a peaceful wander though that level although a monk in this one would have been good - instead I had to be satisfied with a red banner oddly placed in one corner for no apparent reason as it provided the splash of colour that I wanted.

this is a beautiful and perfect composition.like the textured decayed roof & pillars of the old age architecture.
All the elements are here and everything is so harmoniously balanced. Executed with your usual accomplished technique and full of wonderful and captivating light. I love it!

Another fine POV. That structure is sure impressive. I'm only intrigued by the red object hiding in the center.

Yes entering places of worship you are sometimes also required to remove your shoes as well...I have seen so many people ignore the rules & it is not right...
What an interesting piece of architecture is it a temple or monastery?
I like the little bits of green vegetation the beautiful bright blue sky & the light - all perfectly captured.
