Rock carvings 2

The stupa and monastery at the top of the long climb. Rock-carvings all the way. Not the best shot, taken from a moving boat.
The carvings look larger than life in this one!

Amazingly well composed for having been taken from moving boat

Amazing. Are these the steps the monk has to climb every time he comes home?

These shots are amazing, How good that you could see and remember this place.

@fbailey You're right, they do. And I guess they are judging from the height of the fence. The whole place is quite extraordinary, just a shame we really only got a, literally, passing glance.

@jgpittenger Thanks Jane, probably more by luck than good management. Everything happened so quickly, just wish I'd thought to use burst mode. The only place to shoot from was one side of the sundeck and, of course, everyone was up there with cameras so I was lucky to get a good spot.

@ethelperry It was quite extraordinary to see 'in the flesh', as it were. What a pity we couldn't've had more time to see, photograph and appreciate these amazing carvings. The boat did slow down a lot, but we were past all too quickly. Thank goodness for a zoom lens.
