Forces of Nature

Crushing nature

A strangler fig tree crushes part of temple in Angkor Wat

I love this shot of a strangler fig’s roots flowing down the columns of this temple and the roof buckling under the sheer weight of the tree. The way the roots are shaped remind me of something viscous, like melted caramel. This destruction shows the immense power of nature.
