The Hidden Buddhist Temple of Borobudur at Sunrise

If you want to see how I made this (and how you can too!), visit my HDR Tutorial. I hope it gives you some new tricks!


This morning I got a wakeup call at 3:30 AM to head out on a distant trek to Borobudur to climb the temple before sunrise. I had a flashlight and a fully loaded iPod for the ascent. I stayed at the top and all around the temple for most of the morning, collecting shots here and there as misty clouds rolled in, through, around, and over the temple.


This temple laid abandoned and overgrown for about 800 years until it was rediscovered by the British.


You can see the distant volcano rumbing in the morning sunrise...
