Silk Cotton Tree and Strangler Fig Tree, Ta Prohm, Angkor, Cambodia


This photo was taken in Ta Prohm, Angkor, Cambodia. The trees growing out of the ruins are perhaps the most distinctive feature of Ta Prohm, and two species predominate: the larger is the Silk Cotton Tree (Ceiba Pentandra), and the smaller is the Strangler Fig. You can already and will see more from Cambodia looking at my Cambodia floder.

Thank you so very much for sharing this exceptional photo. I have not visited Ta Prohm personally and do look forward to the trip. I have written a lot about the beauty of trees and Ta prohm is a featured part. Please visit at:
