Sacred geometry by foureyes Sacred geometry by foureyes
The great palace complex at the heart of Beijing, also known as the 'Forbiden City'.
Built from 1406 to 1420 by 200,000 workers,
the buildings were aligned on north to south lines,
with the most important buildings oriented towards the sun,
....belived to be an expression of the cosmic order.

Using just three elements (IMO. palace, light and the guard) you've get a brilliant photo:)

After viewing your breathtaking "Monolith" image, I checked out your gallery and promptly added you to my list. This image in particular is incredible. The composition, the color, the mood...all of it. Makes me want to visit China.
