On a tour of Wat Mahathat, a temple in Ayutthaya, Thailand, Your Shot member Julian Bound spotted a large stone Buddha head sitting encased in a tree.
“Its roots are said to have grown around the sculpture during a time when the temple lay abandoned and overgrown,” Bound writes.
“Drawn to the uniqueness of the statue, I knelt down to take the shot as rich sunlight played across the Buddha’s features, making sure to capture the ground before the tree to give depth and scale to the image.”
