Gajasura vadha murthy

Madurai

The form of Siva, assumed while killing a demon named Nila.

This is a detail of the North Gopuram. These Gopurams are covered with thousand and more small statues all painted as they are to invoque the whole univers of Gods to this holy place. The big one as my target has the hight of a big man, placed in the middle above the entrance of this gate.

I doubted a long time to post this detail in search for a good way to spot my target. Finally I decided the old way of reholding light and framed it.

Nikon Coolpix 5700
Shutter Speed: 1/175 F-Stop: f/4.7 full exif
