Photographer's Note

Eastern gopura (entrance gate) to the inner temple complex, Ta Prohm, Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia.

You'll notice that there's no one about. That's not down to painstaking work with the clone tool (!) but simply the result of going there out of season and very early in the morning. We'd got up before dawn, found a tuc-tuc driver (don't they ever sleep?) and arrived at the eastern entrance - the "back door" - just before the sun had risen. So we were the only two people there as far as we could tell, for at least three quarters of an hour. Ta Prohm is in much the same condition in which it was found: the photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor's most popular temples with visitors. So we felt very privileged to have it all to ourselves for so long.
