It might be a storm. But from within the clouds, rays of sunshine remind the weary that peace shall come. It is a matter of faith. It is a matter of acceptance.

I wish peace to this land. To all the people and to my loved ones.

New on 500px : Temple of Silence by roberto_pazzi by roberto_pazzi

The Pura Luhur Batukau (Temple of Luhur Batukau).
It’s located on the slopes of the volcano Gunung Batukau and it’ is surrounded by green forest.
This is definitely one of the most mystical temples of Bali.
It has a “meru” (Hindu shrine) with seven roofs dedicated to Maha Dewa, the goddess of the mountain, and it has altars dedicated to the lakes Bratan, Buyan and Tamblingan.
Visiting this temple is a pleasure because it is rarely visited by tourists.
The only sounds you can hear are the songs of birds and the litany of priests.

Murray, myself and another friend were photographing a religious ceremony at a ghat on the river in India’s second most holy city of Vrindavan when Gunjan, who ekes out a living selling floral offerings to pilgrims and tourists approached him creating this evocative scene for my camera. The bird was a magical bonus flying into shot at just the right time. To read more about Gunjan visit http://ift.tt/1lUniSB.
