An iconic Angkor Wat photo

This was taken at Ta Prohm. Think “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. It took a lot of patience for me to get this photo without someone standing in front of it getting their photo taken. I’m surprised they still let people into this area. It seems so unstable with lots of fallen rubble everywhere.
what a great doorway. I remember it!

When we were there in 20165 the guides were talking about there not being much longer before people were not allowed to wonder all over the temple grounds. I remember well the crowds around this doorway and people queuing up for photos. Like you I wanted one without anyone, but someone had left an empty bottle of water in the way of a good photo! You are bringing back so many memories. This is a great photo to show all of those tree roots over the door - and you captured a bit of the light coming in from the back too.

Nice patience! I remember the huge group of tourists...
Enjoy the other temples ;) if you have the possibility, the sunrise over Angkor wat was amazing!

That certainly is incredible. No wonder it is an iconic spot for taking photographs.

The root system is amazing! Well done for managing to get a shot without anyone in it, I guess it's Selfieville there.
