Bathed by the Sun

Sunlight Buddha, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

I remember this as a particularly hot day. S2 and I had to cool off at a convenience stop after shooting pictures and attempting to climb the steps leading to the Batu Caves. Even the Giant Buddha was not spared from the sun. On closer inspection, you can see the rays of light striking this statue which guards the entrance to the cave.

This photo is also a good example of scale.

Taken May 2007 at the Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur.

This week's Lens Day theme: Sunshine

Kostas and Connie, thanks for the visit too.

Kayers, only about 17 steps. There were monkeys all around plus I had cramps the day before after walking around the butterfly and bird parks and orchid garden. I'm not really into Photoshop though I use Picnik to auto fix, crop, add text. Beyond that, no more. I'm a bit of a purist but not entirely.
