Bali Stupa

(HDR image of the Buddhist stupa at the top of the Bramavihara-Arama Temple, near Banjar, Bali.) The Bramavihara-Arama Buddhist Temple is the religious site to visit in northern Bali; so, we went. The temple is vertical, with grounds, gardens, and shrines on several levels. At the top I emerged at an enormous open space, with wide lawns and seating steps set amongst manicured gardens, leading across a broad stepped field to this impressive stone stupa. The spiritualist in me reveled in the quiet majesty.

Autumn Stream HDR

(HDR image of a stream running through golden-colored autumn woods) The fall colors were already passing peak, but the woods blazed with gold (and a little green and orange). Standing next to the stream, I was looking due west; the warm sunset light backlit the fall colors in the woods, making the scene glow. The colors were impossibly vibrant and saturated. I decided to try an HDR capture.
