The Impressions of Autumn (28)

Two years ago, I have a series known as The Impressions of Autumn.

I don’t think I have showcased all the photos.

This is a continuation of the series.dscf3377

The picture was taken in in the hills of South Korea during Autumn.

We walked for a couple of hours to reach the temple.

The red tree in the foreground stands out in contrast to the temple in the background.

These colors give us the real feel of Autumn..

Weekly Photo Challenge: Rare ( Offering)

This week’s DP photo challenge is Rare.

I have never posted this photo as it was inadvertently focused; I should have focused it on the dragon head.DSCF0625

The picture was taken in a temple in Macau.

I have seen incense and oranges being offered in temple; but never have I seen the offerings placed on a wooden dragon boat like altar.

Isn’t this rare?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Faces

This week’s DP Photo Challenge is Faces.

At the Bayon Temple in Cambodia, there sits 216 gigantic faces of the Buddha.CSC_0302A

Many of them are arranged in a minaret of four faces looking in four orthogonal directions.

The faces look similar but, in fact, each of them is different – they are all hand crafted.DSC_0399

Here, I have handpicked three of the faces which I found most impressive.

They all seem to be smiling; they all look benevolent too.IMGP1185

They are all mesmerizing, please enjoy 🙂

Up Up to the Sky

While travelling in Yunnan, China, I captured this photo of some temples.

The interesting thing is that at the corners of the eaves of the temples, there are funny decorations pointing to the sky.DSC_0262

To me, they look like dragons, dancing upwards to the sky.

I could only marvel at the attention of details to this roof construction.

Not sure whether there is some mythology behind it.
