Belur Chennakeshava temple: The evening pictures

I had been to Beluru chennakeshava temple few times earlier and didn’t have any specific expectations when we visited it again last weekend, as a part of travel bloggers meet at Hoysala village resort.

It had rained while we were heading to Belur and the sky had cleared as we reached there. It was about 6PM and sun was preparing to set for the day, into the Arabian ocean few 100kms away. Fully clear evening sky, coloured further by setting sun offered nice photographic opportunity around this historic monument. Presence of water on the ground allowed attempting reflection shots.

Taking advantage of the special conditions, I’ve taken a few snaps of the Beluru Chennakeshawa temple premises. Encouraged by numerous comments in facebook, I’m sharing them here as a blogpost.

Hope you like them. These are as is photos and no processing was done. If you have some tips on what else I could have done in the given situation (some different settings/angles etc), please do share

There was a rainbow formed and struggled hard to capture it effectively. Below was the best I could get.
