K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge:Stone

A heart of stone is a sculpture? – Charles de Leusse

We, Indians, love our stones and sculptures and if we could make a sculpture and a huge one at that from a single stone, nothing like it. There are so many examples of such monolithic stone based sculptures available in vast varieties and quantities throughout the Southern region (I can only talk about places I have been. I haven’t traveled much to the Northern parts, so can’t say for sure). Here is one such Monolithic Bull at Lepakshi.

Added some effects using DPP to warmify and then change the color temperature too.

It was a ladies day out and we went on a drive to a place called Lepakshi
Got some HDR shots done from the place.
