Sharing my experiences of this beautiful world that we live in through photography. And some geeky tech photo stuff.

Borobudur Temple at Full Moon, Java, Indonesia

September 29, 2013  -  Architecture, Temples

Last week I was in Central Java for a couple of nights with the main purpose to photograph the Borobudur Temple at sunrise. The timing was especially special this time. The timing of the sunrise was almost the same as the timing of the moonset. On opposite horizons two very special events were taking place. Which one to photograph? I can only look at one horizon at a time. I picked the moonset as it is quite difficult to time a visit to such a special place to capture the moonset right when the sun is rising. Here are a few images from that very special morning.

Truly a special morning. Breathtaking in every way!
