Travel Theme – Silhouette

This enlarged and slightly darkened image of the giant Tian Tian Buddha shot from the main street in Ngong Ping, is the only one that comes close to being termed a silhouette in my archives!

The name is derived from the three tier marble altar that is modeled on the altar at Tian Tian (Temple of Heaven) in Beijing. Installed in 1993 in Ngong Ping – Lantau island, HongKong, this Big Buddha we were told, is unique among the giant Buddha statues around the world, since this is the only one that faces North, while every one of the others face South.

Don’t forget to check out Ailsa’s brilliant silhouettes here.

Until next time…..happy travels, no matter where life takes you :-)
