Photo 101 – Connect + Vast

IMG_4389

Haunting, mesmerising and simply gobsmacking. This is just a corner of Ta Prohm, one of the most famous temples in the vast Angkor Wat complex in Cambodia. Forgotten for centuries, this stone temple which was once an integral part of a powerful Hindu kingdom, had been literally swallowed up by the forest over time. Branches, roots and entire tree trunks have insidiously crawled into the crevices of the temple, and inched between individual bricks and stone until Nature and temple have entwined themselves into each other and become one. It is humbling to see that Nature is infinitely patient, but she will always have her way.
