I wanted to come back here at night, to get some galaxy shots but you know how it goes when you're travel. Got side tracking shooting other locations.
Next time I go to Yosemite I hope to catch a little bit of weather. Maybe camp out and get some sunrises as well.
This view is from behind Tanah Lot while looking out into the ocean as the sun began its decent. We were sitting at a restaurant eating a quick dinner / snack and having some drinks while I took this photo. I was literally at our dinner table when I took this. Pretty cool view hu?
Tanah Lot is one of the Seven Sea Temples located around Bali. A popular tourist spot in Bali Indonesia.
Here's a fun fact. In 1980 Japan donated approximately $180 million to repair the temple's rock face and other significant locations around Bali. 1/3 of this temple is actually made up of artificial rock.
The Goju-no-to is a five story Pagoda located in Miyajima Japan. These buildings often function as places of worship, most commonly Buddhist. The Goju-no-to is located near the Itsukushima Shrine on a small island near Hiroshima. I've been to Miyajima twice now and the location still amazes me. It's one of my favorite places in all of Japan to take pictures. I think because of the mix of old Japanese architecture from the Edo-Era, and the tame deer that roam the roads.
Today's Photo - Fiery Goju-no-to Pagoda
This is Hanuman, the mighty warrior monkey. One of the characters from the Kecak Dance of Bali Indonesia who Hama allies himself so as to save his wife Sita from the clutches of Rahwana. Hunaman is a hero and a fan favorite of the Kecak Dance.
This is part of a series of photos I'm doing from the Kecak Dance. I've been going back to my travel photography and taking another pass at processing. I'm trying to create a more artistic version of what I shot rather then just posting boring travel photography. :) Plus I keep finding old photos that I've forgotten about. It's finally nice to be getting caught up.
