Sunrise as Borobudur Temple in Indonesia
Sunrise at Borobudur Temple starts slowly, but once the sun breaks through the horizon it seems to rise very quickly. Throngs of onlookers wait for the small moment when a tiny ray of light finally escaped from behind the mountains in the distance. It is important to make zero impact when you travel to such a historical site. Otherwise the beauty will be lost for those yet to come. I always make sure to respect the environment and photography is an easy way to capture the beauty of such places without damaging it.
