Photographer's Note

One more from my driving holiday stable down South. Again shot at the Periya Kovil. This corridor is called the Aradhana Mantapam or the Circumbulatory corridor. It contains nearly 100 Lingams and Frescoes to the left. That picture can be seen here.

This corridor in the ancient days could easily seat 2,000 people for the afternoon meals which used to be served at the temple.

The corridor has held great fascination for me because it just seems to go on and on and disappear into nothingness. The photo does not do it justice. It has to be seen in person. And I shoot this everytime I returrn which is once every 4 to 5 years.

*****************
Info about the shot

RAW to JPEG to Sepia and resized for TE. No other adjusttment done. Know in hindsight that I should have managed the light at the right. But I am always in a stupor when I see this place.

The title is borrowed from Wanda1 from one of her posts. Thanks Wanda if you do visit this shot.

Comments always welcome!
