Picture of the Day: Meditating Monks at Pongour Falls
MEDITATING MONKS AT PONGOUR FALLS
Photograph by DANG NGO – Prints Available
A simply breathtaking shot of mediating monks at Pongour Falls in Dalat, Vietnam by photographer Dang Ngo. Also known as the 7 layers waterfall, Pongour Falls is located just outside of Dalat (Lam Dong province) and is the largest waterfall in the region. The water drops about 30 meters (98.5 ft), and flows dramatically over 7 ‘layers’ into a big pool at the bottom.
While details on the shot are sparse, it appears to be a composite of a long exposure shot with a separate shot of the meditating monks.
