Photographer's Note

‘Beng Mealea - An embrace or a stranglehold?’

By the stranglehold I mean my first photo in the WS.

For my main photo I chose a view similar to my previous picture.
However, a slightly wider view and more windows are visible.

The photo here was taken shortly after my previous one. But the sun was shining a little brighter. There was more light and I liked to show the difference between the black & white version and the other version with limited colours.
I guess I should have shown this photo in the WS of my previous photo. At first I only wanted to show the b&w picture. Afterwards I started to like this one too.

Several members wonder if the trees and their branches in Beng Mealea are just keeping the ruins up or making them collapse sooner. Hard to say. In the very long term, I think it will only harm the constructions.
