Kay adds:

“Ta Prohm is one of the Angkor complex’s more interesting temples – especially because the buildings are overgrown with massive trees, giving you a really strong impression of how nature can impose itself over man-made structures, given enough time.

“Although there’s plenty of interest in photographing wide-angle views of the buildings, sometimes it can be more rewarding to zoom in on some of the smaller stuff. There’s an abundance of detail on the walls of Angkor’s temples, like these figures of praying holy men.”
