Ta Som, Angkor, Cambodia - Click to View Hi-Res Image

This week’s TravelTuesday Picture of the Week is one of the many photos I didn’t select to be included in a blog post, but deserves to get the spotlight anyway. This is from my first day exploring the Temples of Angkor (see here). Ta Som isn’t one of the well-known temples, but that can be a good thing because you don’t have to wait for other tourists to move out of the way before snapping your own stunning photographs. Much like the more well-known Ta Prohm, Ta Som also features some scenes of nature taking over what man has abandoned. You can see that in this picture of one of the entrance ways of Ta Som, where a strangler fig tree has started growing on it. It was definitely a fascinating find, one that I couldn’t resist taking multiple pictures of (which you all can see on Flickr). It was also a great introduction to the wonders I would see at Ta Prohm the next day.

I hope you enjoyed this TravelTuesday Picture of the Week. Enjoy the rest of TravelTuesday on Twitter and follow me @hyperren. Come back next week for another PotW!
