It's very contrast. Monks clad in bright red clothes with red umbrellas on the background of gentle light pagoda and azure sky. Beautiful view.

The very bright colour contrast is the added touch to this photo but the pagoda is very interesting in itself and I too wish we could see the whole of it.

Quote the Author: "It was a fine day, with sunny weather."

Serenity and the cool stone of it all.  

Rather it makes me wonder, even though the pagoda is alight in sun, if the stone is cool to the touch.

Sitting happily on a step contemplating, I would be here for awhile.

I would have liked to have seen this shot from a lower angle so that the top of the pagoda was included in the shot.

Red,white and blue on a beautiful day. What a focused, clear picture to enjoy in our shivering winter!  The young monks with their exact same umbrellas, look almost triplet like, in their form and red robes. This is a good shot without doubt.     Happy Valentines Day, everyone.  j.e.s.

It is wonderful to be able to travel the world through other peoples eyes, and yes, photos.

Having never been out of South Africa, I am thankful to be able to travel in this manner.
