This is one of the many entrances of the main temple 'The Bayon' at Angkor Wat ,the largest of all Cambodian archaeological sites .For a brief description of 'The Bayon ' please see my previously posted photo 'Faces of Bayon '. As you can see the jungle has claimed back its territory slowly , it is a tremendous sight being able to view enormous tree roots engulfing whole , lifting up and literally breaking apart some of the sturdy stone structures , believe me , don't underestimate the power of a tree.
Made a few corrections in order to make this scanned picture look as appealing as possible for this Friday' s theme .

HI Carol
Incredible shot of these roots swallowing the building.
You did a great job of scanning, as the details are so precise. This would look great in B&W.
Great shot

Ça ressemble à une scène d'un film d'indiana Jones.
Excellent pour le thème.

This is amazing and beautiful, well done for the theme!

Bonjour Carol
Ça contredit cette phrase de la Bible: ".....et sur cette pierre je bâtirai mon Eglise"!!
Un rude combat et moi aussi je pense que le gladiateur aux longs bras l'emportera!
Sur mon terrain j'ai laissé pousser une petite feuille d'érable juxtaposée à une roche immense et aujourd'hui, cette roche est retournée d'un quart de tour!
Au revoir.

Hi Carol,

Impressive photo of the Bayon Temple. The enormous roots of the ceiba trees are fantastic. I like the natural colours and the composition. The photo reminds me the days spent in Cambodia. Thanks for sharing
