Thank you, Nicci!
You posted this for me didn’t you 🙂 The architecture so melding in with nature is dramatic, almost like it’s a fantasy and the tree is walking over the temple.
Yes, this one is for you! I have other posts with trees walking all over the place 🙂
it grew over the building??!! Amazing.
Hi, I always wonder how this happened. Temples first, then abandoned and buried, trees came along sending the roots to the ground, temple ruins discovered, people removed the soil cover and trees now on top of walls with roots exposed. Can somebody advise me whether this is the sequence?
Great photo, Michael!
Thank you, Fabio!
It is always fascinating to see the way in which nature reclaims space from humankind.
Yeah, there is a constant tug of war between the two!
I am so jealous that you have been there and not me. In a good way.
Hi, I think you must have taken other pictures which are better than mind. Sometimes, they are only by chance!
Something unimaginable! Wish I had taken this shot!
Thanks for sharing this amazing photo
You are free to download this picture, if you want it!
Thank you so much!
Now this one looks really monstrous! It is like the tree is a giant octopus eating up the old stonework 🙂
This picture is striking, I like your analogy of octopus!
Reblogged this on LIGHTOFCOUNTRY.
Thanks for reblogging this on!
I’ve been travelling and am finally catching up on the blog reader. I must say that I have been enjoying your views of Angkor Wat. Take care, my friend.
Hi, great to hear from you again. Thanks for liking the Angkor Wat photos – there are more to come. Safe travels and regards, Michael
:O how and where is it growing from!! Simply amazing and very well captured.
I suspect the temple was once buried and now excavated, exposing the roots!
Mysterious! I am going to read more about it now 🙂 thanks
Sure you will find it interesting!
