You wouldn't have imagined there is so much green behind that Buddha image

You wouldn't have imagined there is so much green behind that Buddha image

A repeat shot of the far view of the gorgeous White Buddha against the rich emerald green of the surrounding mountains, this time without the buildings in the foreground. I took the picture again because her the emerald green of the bush on the mountain is more pronounced and more rich. The hilltop Buddha is actually the Wat Phra That Mae shrine. At the base of the steps leading down from the Buddha and partially visible is also the Mae Hong Son temple, partially destroyed by fire. Notes and pictures of both of these appeared earlier in this album and I will therefore let you enjoy the view and save you the commentary. (Pai, north Thailand, Oct. 2018)
