Grand. We’ve hosted a „Big“ photo challenge in the past, but for this week’s challenge, we want you to consider not just the size of something, but also that special element: the „wow factor“ of a scene or subject that makes a picture so stunning. That magical quality you’re always out looking for and so excited to capture with your camera.
I got just this statue in my mind when I read the topic of this week. This Buddha (Thich Ca Buddha) is not only tall with its 27 meter, no, it impresses very much. It’s seated on the Bà Nà Hill, roughly one hour drive from Da Nang in Vietnam. There is a huge resort on the Bà Nà hill with a decent climat. It was a nice change to the tropical heat around Hoi An. Too bad that we had a bit crappy weather. The head disappeared sometimes completely in the mist 😦 But it really touched me while standing at the bottom of this Buddha. One can see it from far down in the valley.
