Of all the ruins in the amazing Angkor complex, the ancient monastery of Ta Prohm would have to be my favourite. Ta Prohm has been left in a semi ruined state with giant fig trees growing out of temples and huge roots clambering over roof tops and slowly pulling the buildings apart. It is the most atmospheric of all the temples in the main Angkor complex of Cambodia, and I would guess thats why it featured so heavily in the film Tomb Raider…
Photographic Tour Dates for 2014
I took this image on my last photographic tour to Cambodia and Vietnam in May this year, but I’ve only now got around to playing with it a bit. We only spent 3 days in Cambodia on the last tour, something I regretted at the time and something I will be correcting on the Cambodia Photo workshop for 2015. Then we will be spending more than a week in Cambodia, with a lot of it around the unique temple ruins of Angkor and beyond, including a couple of early mornings at Ta Prohm! Details will be going up shortly for the 2014 dates for this tour, and also my 2014 Photography tour to Bhutan.
Image was shot on the Hasselblad H4D-60 with a 28mm f4 lens.
