The Golden Temple - India

On a freezing cold morning, we raced to beat sunrise in the Punjab, India. I could already see the shot I wanted in my head.

This stunning building is the Sri Harmandir Sahib, also known as Golden Temple and is the holiest Gurdwara and the most important pilgrimage site of Sikhism.

I wanted to capture the Golden Temple being struck by the first light of a new day. We almost missed the shot because we couldn't locate the right person to give us permission to use a tripod, which was essential to create this shot. The shocking blue light lasted all of 2 minutes before turning milky foggy white. Love this shot and definitely worth all the effort it took to get it.
