Kushinagar - India, Paranirvana Stupa, which commemorates the place where Buddha Shakyamuni died. Families come to cover the lying Buddha with robes. This was one of those circumstances where I felt compelled to lower the camera and just live in the moment. Leica CL + 18-56

There are many famous reclining Buddhas (I've photographed several in at least five countries), but perhaps may be the most revered.  In honoring the story of the Buddha's life you can find representations of all stages throughout Asia.

      I love the drama of storm clouds. All pics taken with TL2/18-56 mm combo.
