Monumental (ThursdayTreeLove)

"Monuments and archaeological pieces serve as testimonies of man's greatness and establish a dialogue between civilizations showing the extent to which human beings are linked"

Vicente Fox




This magnificent Ficus is growing at the entrance of the Ellora Cave complex. The winter morning sun streamed in through the leaves and aerial roots creating a pattern on the ground. My humble phone camera was unable to capture the full glory but I think this image gives a general idea!

A monumental tree at a UNESCO World Heritage site. What a wonderful coincidence! 

I am joining Parul in her ThursdayTreeLove bloghop. Head over to see some amazing trees from around the world. Better still, join in!

What a glorious capture! The tree stands so regally in the frame, making its' presence felt all around. And, the sun rays just added to the overall magic created by your lens. :)

Beautiful! Ficus trees are amazing. We had a couple in our school yard and I remember eating the fruit from the ground in spite of being told to be careful of worms in them!

@Vidya Kids tend not to be fearful... not following instructions goes hand in hand with that i guess... Thanks for stopping by :-)

I think I have seen this tree :) We visited Ellora this December and the compound was beautiful. You are right. The morning capture is beautiful and the sun rays make the tree look even more beautiful.
So glad you joined!
