2013, Day 55 - An ant descending

Sometimes having people in your landscapes and architectural photos add a sense of scale.  I just tucked and rolled down the stairs but more prudent people, like Brian Matiash, took them one step at a time.  It can be rather tricky, the steps are quite steep and some of them have broken treads so the safest way climb up or down is to zigzag from one side to the other.  These stairs lead from the second to the third level of Ta Keo and having Brian there gives you some idea how massive these temples are.  Keep in mind that Ta Keo is, by Angkorian standards, rather small, Beng Mealea and Angkor Wat dwarf this site by a large margin.
