Ethereal Bali

Ethereal Bali

Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, Bali Indonesia

Mid afternoon and the mountains disappear behind a curtain of fog. Though near the equator, the temperature drops; a chilling breeze gently stirs leaves. Twin pagodas appear to be floating, or perhaps just the peaks of much grander temples under the water. Unchanged for centuries. The mist dampens all sounds save for a light wind whistling across the lake. The scene is ethereal as if a dream.

Built in 1663 on the shores of Lake Bratan, Pura Ulun Danu Bratan is a Balinese Hindu Temple used for offerings ceremonies to the water goddess Dewi Danu. 

The image was processed in Lightroom and On One Perfect Photo Effects.

    1. Thanks Madhu. There is a timelessness there I was trying to evoke.
