Sunol Water Temple – Long Exposure


As promised, here’s another image of the Sunol Water Temple.  I chose to do a Long Exposure and converted it to black and white.

The inscription at the top of the temple reads:  “I will make the wilderness a pool of water and the dry lands springs of water.”

  1. As always wonderful photos.

  2. I really like the way the architectural details, ceiling detail, and inscription show up with so much acuity. Very nice.

    • I love the way you word things. Thanks so much David. I think that inscription is amazing. The way people worded things long ago is so different than our current lack of vocabulary flourishes!

  3. Wow – great job! I love seeing the entire structure embedded in the landscape and “framed” by the cloudy sky.

  4. Wow! Laura- this wonderfully is dramatic and evocative- lovely image-

  5. Another view into a fantasy world, Laura. I like how you captured the temple and the long exposure of the clouds. As with all long exposures and moving trees I usually have mixed feelings. But in this one they work. Add a bit more drama to the scene. Love it. Smiles. Reinhold

  6. Long exposure “suits” very well to the ambiance and accentuates the details of the architecture. Great shot!

  7. Such an appropriate quote in California where water is so sacred and often scarce. Moody photo, very nice, and beautiful expression, Laura.

    • I love that inscription for the very reason you mention and I’m happy to hear you like how I presented it. Things of old always seem so much more special than things we build today.

  8. The long exposure and B/W has worked really well here Laura. Great shot. Out of interest how long was the LE? MM🍀
