Borobudur, a Buddhist temple and one of Indonesia's most popular tourist attraction. Constructed in 9th century, it was then abandoned and spent most of its time under the volcanic ash until it was found again by Sir Raffles of the British. It then had undergone many restoration process and now its a Unesco Heritage Site.

I had the opportunity to photograph this amazing location with Elia Locardi. On the last day of our stay, the sunset did not disappoint us.

This shot is actually facing east towards the two volcanos, Mt Merapi and Mt Merbabu with the warm glow of setting sun bathing the temple itself. The afternoon was so clear that we can see the two mountains clearly in the distance.
