I also love the lighting. It frames the pedestal perfectly.

Wow. I could never capture this with my lack of skills. My flash would ruin it. It's gorgeous.

That is a very cool shot. It's just dripping with ancient mysteries.

Light, line, color, shadow -- you got it all going on here! This is a shot to be proud of!

I really like the lines, light and texture. It has a certain simplicity, but also a richness in the hand shaped walls and arch.

I so enjoyed your travelwalk to Abu Ghosh. And I just knew as I read that there might be singing!
As for this photo, it is 'divine.'
Thanks for sharing and I hope to see you soon with the cider for a visit in the red chairs :O)

That shot is worthy of a frame! :)

Carver said...

What a beautiful shot. Almost like light at the beginning of a tunnel although I guess there isn't a tunnel behind the arch, the photo suggests that there could be.
