Deep within the jungles of Guatemala lie the massive Mayan ruins of Tikal. A place that has been on my list to photograph for quite some time and has now made it as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The most fascinating part about wandering around this site was pondering upon how this metropolis of up to 90 thousand people in it’s hay day can just disappear and be swallowed up by the jungle to be forgotten for centuries.
