Photographer's Note

The famous Grand Budha sit in a lotus flower in Po Lin monastery. This impressive budha in bronze has 22 meters high and its one of the biggest in the world.It is located amoung the green mountains of Lantau Island and visible from kilometers around the island in a clear day. The lotus flower is a symbol of purity. The monastry was built in the beggining of XX century and its location was chosen by its beautiful peaceful ladscape.

Taken during my second trip to HK.

Another version of this beatuful budha on the WS, let me know each one you prefer. Picture taken with overxposure to isolate the sky and get its features, contrast and crop.
