Covered Stone Walkway, Chennakesava Temple – Somanathapura, India

The stonework of the Chennakesava Temple is exquisite. This covered stone walkway runs the entire perimeter of the temple. The heft of the stones and the detailing make for an impressive architectural masterpiece.

I used the Olympus PEN-F to make this image. But, I changed my usual 50mm equivalent lens, which I rarely remove, and attached a super-wide-angle. The Olympus 9-18mm is a compact and take anywhere lens, which I shot at 11mm, a 22mm equivalent. It allowed me to take in the scene while making the leading lines even more impressive with some wide-angle distortion.

I featured this photo in my book of India but as a black and white. This color version shows the rich golden color of the stonework.
