Interesting Photo of the Day: Inside a Buddhist Cave Temple

For us, Datdawtaung Cave is the perfect setting for a beautifully lit and composed photograph. But for many Buddhist monks, it is a place of peace, meditation, and spiritual enlightenment. This image by Burmese photographer Lin Tun beautifully captures the cave:

Datdawtaung cave is located near the town of Kyauk Sel in the Mandalay region of Myanmar. Although no two are the same, the cave temples of Myanmar draw upon natural lighting to highlight the raw architecture of the cavern and the beautifully constructed alters within.

The photo was shot with a Nikon D90 and a focal length of 21mm. The camera was set at 1/60 of a second, f/7.1, and ISO 800.

“In this cave you can see and discover the secret of natural beauty and so many Buddha images and even a pagoda.”
