When I first saw the sun right behind the Brihadheeshwara temple in Tanjore, I groaned in despair. I was hoping to catch the golden glow of the setting sun on the world heritage site gopuram. With the sun shining into the camera, that was not going to be possible. Then it dawned on me – silhouette was the way to go. And the barrel distortion at 18mm focal length adds to the interesting effect.
