Contrast in Color : 2nd Century Budhist Karla Caves at Lonavala, India

This is by far the biggest single rock cut cave prayer room (chaityagraha) in all of India. The picture captures the entrance to the prayer room. My friend who was visiting the cave had a bright pick rain jacket that lit up the otherwise grey rock sculptures. Its a memorable picture for "contract in color" and the scale of this wonderful temple built 2000 years ago.
