Angkor

Angkor, Cambodia

The Ta Prohm temple area is covered in trees but interestingly these trees grow from above.  Seeds land in the upper branches of a tree and then grow down to the ground. As they grow they wrap themselves around the host trees trunk, slowly engulfing and encasing the trunk until the host tree dies. Sometimes the tree finds it difficult to find its way to the ground and creates something hauntingly beautiful, like over this doorway.
