The People’s Temple
Wat Suthat does not carry the drama or legend of the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun), but for many residents in Bangkok, Wat Suthat is the temple of choice for celebrating major Buddhist festivals.
The main hall or wihan pictured here is home to a beautiful 13th Century bronze Buddha. The ashes of King Rama VIII, brother of the current king, are contained in the base of the 8-metre tall statue.
This image, taken at about 8pm shortly after a rainstorm, is actually a mini panorama comprised of two horizontal 17mm shots. The first for the sky and top of the hall; the second for the base of of the hall and grounds.
f/10, 13 seconds, ISO 100. I stitch the two images in Photoshop, reduce noise and add the border.
