Buddha's Steeple (with a volcano poking through the fog)

I went back to Borobudur a second day in a row for a morning sunrise and stayed for about five hours. I would mostly sit in the shade, listen to my music, and do some reading. Of course, I'd take regular breaks as the clouds changed and the light moved around.


There, in the distance, you can see the volcano poking through the fog...


Inside each of those little "bell cages" is a buddha statue facing out towards the countryside.


I suggest you see the LARGE version on my blog at
