The best example I can think of ‘Trees & Buildings’ combined is at Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
Most of the temples have been cleaned up of overgrowth but a lesser temple has been left in ruins.
A Banyan tree enveloping a temple entrance at Angkor Wat.In order to take a panorama shot with my camera I had to take one shot then line it up and take the next one and the next etc. Because of the time gap between shots I was able to wait until all the people had left that area of the temple before I took the next section.
The most photogenic overgrown temple had queues of people waiting their turn at being photographed among the Banyan tree roots.My turn. We probably should have taken a shot of all the people waiting their turn; it might have been more interesting.
One last shot. The Banyan trees were actually quite destructive but I have to say this was my favourite temple on the whole Angkor Wat site.

WOW. I can’t even imagine. Love your photos. 😀
Iconic trees and buildings beautiful collection 🙂
Those photographs are incredible. What era are the temples?
It’s an entire city, started in the 11th century as Hindu temple grounds, and gradually changing into a Buddhist city at the end of the 12th century.
Thank you for sharing these photos for this challenge. It is amazing to see how much damage a tree can do to a building.
Love your collection! I had Angkor Wat in mind, but then I decided different.
