<This post contains 2 photos> Here are two images which show trees growing close to stone structures in Angkor Wat. Some of the trees are tilted and inclined at a considerable angle. Understand trees like these will be removed for fear that they may topple and affect the integrity of the stone structures.

I have never posted these two photos because I am not satisfied with their quality and composition.
The photos show the stone elephants in Angkor Wat.
The other thing I am not too happy about the images is that the stone blocks when put together (re-assemble together after they were ruined?) have some discontinuity.
Hope you still like the photos!
Lately, there are too many things bothering me, those who have been reading my posts may already knew some of them.
I need some positive energy to get back into blogging, but before that I can only retrieve some photos and prepare some quick posts.
The images we got from Angkor Wat are just amazing. Given that many of the structures were built from stone blocks and stacked together, some of the resulting structures can be quite angular too. Here is an example.
The Hill of Crosses is a site of pilgrimage about 12 km north of the city of Šiauliai, in northern Lithuania. The precise origin of the practice of leaving crosses on the hill is uncertain, but it is believed that the first crosses were placed on the former Jurgaičiai or Domantai hill fort after the 1831 Uprising.Over the centuries, not only crosses, but giant crucifixes, carvings of Lithuanian patriots, statues of the Virgin Mary and thousands of tiny effigies and rosaries have been brought here by Catholic pilgrims. The exact number of crosses is unknown, but estimates put it at about 55,000 in 1990 and 100,000 in 2006.
To be honest, I didn’t feel very pleasant when I walked over the hill from one end to the other and back.
Nevertheless, I am happy to share this image which maybe the best picture took over there.
