17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
"Window of opportunity"
This photo shows "Thuparamaya", the first ever stupa to be constructed in Sri Lanka, dating back to 247-207 BC. It is a landmark of cultural and archeological significance to both locals and foreigners alike.
The stupa is surrounded by a circle of stone pillars built in the same era. At this specific point one of the pillars have got misaligned, giving a "window of opportunity" to see the stupa better.
