Temple of Heaven, Beijing (pano #1)


The Temple of Heaven in Beijing, China 100 years, oh sorry, 10 years ago. There were not too many visitors in the temple. In fact it seems to be almost deserted there, compared to the normally crowded Beijing.

    Well, if that’s heaven I don’t want to go there. How bleak, bare, sterile. I want wilderness, nature, forests… life. But I suppose a deathly calm is appropriate for heaven, which is apparently full of dead people. Is this the true colour, or is it a sepia tone photo?

    • Sterile is a good word to describe the feeling of the temple in this sepia toned picture. I didn’t visit this temple early in the morning, but that should be full of people having their morning exercise during the sunrise. The the view and feeling must be different.
