Photographer's Note

This particular place, along with the five towers of Angkor Wat and the faces of Bayon is the symbol of Angkor. For many people Ta Prohm temple is the ultimate Angkor experience. Hidden in the jungle this temple has a unique atmosphere. Giant trees and their roots cover the structures dating back to the end of 12th century. Wandering around is true Indiana Jones/Tomb Raider experience.

This picture was taken in the afternoon, just after a heavy rainfall. It was a magic moment in Ta Prohm, because all the colors, browns and greens, came alive. On the other hand, the rain has forced most tourists to leave the site, so those who decided to stay and surrvive the downpour were rewarded with a chance to enjoy Ta Prohm in almost perfect solitude.
