Where the column meets the roof

Where the column meets the roof

Where the column meets the roof – Modhera series
Modhera, Gujarat, India.

Photograph from the Sun Temple in Modhera, Gujarat. The pigeons who live in this temple are pretty amazing. They have pretty much taken over the temple. This one was sitting on top, in a almost-dark corner, where this intricately carved column met the even more beautiful ceiling.

I processed the photograph in Lightroom 4. Also used Tony Kuyper\’s Photoshop action – \’Make it Glow\’ for the subtle glow in the sandstone. Manually focused, aperture priority, using my Konica Hexanon AR 50mm f1.7 with Konica AR to Micro 4/3rds adaptor. What a fun lens! A little heavy on my slim and trim EPL3 – but love the look of the images from it.

Technical Details:

Camera: Olympus E-PL3
Exposure: 1/60s (manual aperture, manual focus)
Focal Length: 50mm
Lens: Konica Hexanon AR 50mm f1.7 with Konica AR to Micro 4/3rds adapter

Photograph from the Sun Temple in Modhera, Gujarat. The pigeons who live in this temple are pretty amazing. They have pretty much taken over the temple. This pigeon was in a contemplative pose, sitting on the ledge of the cool dark windows, perhaps contemplating life in the bright hot sun outside?

Pigeons on carved ledges looking down – Modhera series
Modhera, Gujarat, India.

Photograph from the Sun Temple in Modhera, Gujarat. During my time there, I was enchanted by the pigeons who have made this temple their home, and how they have pretty much taken over the temple. Inside, the temple, one has to look up and see the exquisitely carved columns, and the roofs…and the pigeons hanging out there.
