Travel Photos Series#21-Sunset at Torrey Pines Gliderport

I was away on business trip at San Diego, USA recently and was introduced to this amazing place by my colleague. Located on the cliffs above Black's beach, the Torrey Pines Gliderport is a paradise for paragliders displaying their paragliding skills with help of the strong, cooling wind.

The cliffs overlooked the majestic Pacific Ocean and we were lucky enough to witness the amazing sunset on that day. I did not bring my DSLR camera but managed to capture the amazing scenes in my I-phone.

Travel Photos Series#20-The Marble Temple

One of my favorite photos in Bangkok, Thailand taken few years back. We went to the Marble Temple (known as Wat Benchamabophit) early morning  to avoid the crowd. I was setting up the camera on the tripod to take our family photos when I saw the monk strolling towards the main temple. I managed to snap a few shots of him in motion with the beautiful temple structure in the background.

Many tourists skipped this lesser temple after visiting the more famous temples like Wat Arun, Wat Phra Khew and Wat Pho. I strongly recommend not to do so as you will potentially miss one of the most beautiful temples you have ever laid your eyes upon ;-D.

Travel Photos Series#19-Kinkaku-ji Temple at Autumn

This world famous Kyoto-based temple has been photographed umpteem times by visitors. Before visiting, I was afraid that the actual scenery could not meet my expectation. I realized my worries were unnecessary when I finally set eyes on Kinkaku-ji (The Golden Pavilion). The first thought that came to my mind was "Beautiful in pictures, gorgeous in reality".

I could not remember how many photos I take that day at the Golden Pavilion :-P. This is one sight you must not miss when you visit Kyoto in Japan.
