Pas facile d'y accéder avec tous ces cailloux.
Ray: Nous devons prendre un peu soin de l'endroit où nous plaçons nos pieds, Claudine ... sinon, pas de problèmes ici.
Setting himself up for the right composition... Nice shorts!
Ray: Tim seems to be setting up some sort of Macro opportunity, while Koen is practicing for the unsteadiness of Old Age [even though his is a as a spring Chicken].
Not so much as setting myself up for whatever composition, but more a matter of being extremely careful not to lose my balance..., it's very easy to concentrate too much on taking pictures and accidentally stumbling over /falling on those uneven rock pieces!
Ray: Aster all the balancing practice you are getting on this little bike, KK, a sandstone rock should not be a challenge for you. smile

Splendid images, this must be a marvellous place to explore
Ray: I thought it a wonderful place, Chris.

The very basic crafting of the shop of stones is clearly evident here. There's a a very good chance of stubbing your toes when investigating such places.
Ray: I tend to get absorbed in the staring and the fotografing, and end up falling over, Alan.
Quel souvenir cela restera pour vous deux !
Ray: Oui ... ce tour à vélo est plein de petits bijoux pour moi, Claudine.

What an exciting thing to do, Ray
Ray: A wonderful place, Lisl, and we had it entirely to ourselves.

It looks like Stonehenge Ray.
Ray: Not that old, Chad, but I can see a connection.
I wonder what tools they had to shape these stones Ray?
Ray: I wonder about this, too, Bill, but do not have an answer.
Looks as though there's enough rubble to reconstruct!
Ray: I expect most of the blocks are still on-sight and are mostly intack. However, there are thousands of blocks and, unlike builders bricks, they are not all the same. Reconstructions would be at least several hundred man-years of work even if the men were experienced at it, Tom.

I can imagine your adventure of discovering these ruins.
Ray: Oh, Good! We love doing these things, Philine.
The tree he is photographing is interesting. How I would love to clamber over these rocks.
Ray: It is so much fun at these places, Mary. The most fun for me is in climbing about while imagining what it must have been like when hundreds [or even thousands] of people were engaged in the construction.

There were several, large, unusual trees growing on the temple ruins...Nature's Reclamation Specialists!
Are we seeing only a small section of these amazing ruins here, Ray?
Ray: These images shows just a small part of the site, Beverly. Yesterday's images showed more of it.
I guess one needed to be careful waling over those rocks.
Ray: I suppose that is so, Brian, but that is not my normal mode of behavior.
i like the way that you included the man taking pictures of the ruins Ray....petersmile
Ray: That is Koen, who took most of the pictures in this series, Peter...most of my pics have him in them because almost none of his pics have him in them.
