The Temple at Sunset

New 50mm Update

I’ve updated my Nikon 50mm review to now point to the new “G” model of the lens. It’s more expensive, but it’s also more flexible with various cameras as well as having better quality.

Daily Photo – The Temple at Sunset

Burning Man is the only place I can go and: a) Not have any idea what I am going to see and b) just know it is going to be awesome.

So, that’s kind of a unique situation, I think. For example, if I go to London, England, I know I’m going to see the Tower Bridge and it’s going to be incredible. But how often do you go in completely blind to a place, and just know you’re going to be amazed?

This is the main temple that lies on the 12 o’clock axis from the burning man himself. Every year it is different. It’s always non-denominational, but it has hints of all the major religions… So, that way, the 1 billion+ Buddhists are happy, the 1 billion+ Hindus are happy, the 1 billion+ Muslims are happy, and the 500 mil+ Christians are happy, and so are the other 2 billion various belief-systems floating around out there. I don’t know how you can make a temple for everyone, but, well, here it is… and everyone seems to like it!

Coming Soon...

    This is amazing and beautiful – with the sky and lighting – it’s hard to pick but I think this is my fav burning man shot of yours!

    wow , amazing lighting and grand
    love the blues !

    Another terrific HDR artwork. It’s more than a photo – it’s a piece of art. However I don’t think any of the religions you mentioned would be happy with it. There are no Buddhas for the Buddhists; there are no crucifixes for Christians; and it is far to ornate for the Muslims. But it’s a beautiful structure.

    Wow. What an increible shot.
    A question about this temple…
    Who pays for all this? How many people work to build it? How long does it take to build, more or less? How far away is Burning Man from a Lowes?
    I gosta know, mr. Trey.

  • Patrick Ahles

    Incredible POV, absolutely gorgeous!

  • http://bryonlippincott@hotmail.com Bryon Lippincott

    Amazing photo,what is it built out of, and who tears all this down when burning man is over.

  • Gail Moshier

    I agree with you Mom, great photo of the temple. What a neat idea. At least they errect a church for all. Thanks for sharing once again. Have a great day, Trey :-)

  • Mark O

    Great shot, but some of your numbers are way off.

  • Ann Gardner

    I love this. Wonderful shot,Trey. You’re making me want to go to burning man myself!
    George, no statues or crucifixes are needed for someone to love and worship God. We can talk to HIm anywhere, any time,which is the beauty of knowing God.

  • http://www.missingthemomgene.com missing moments

    Just an aweeome capture! Our son has gone a number of years … his photos, as you suggest, illustrate you just never know what to expect or see. Candy for the eye!

  • http://www.stuckincustoms.com Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks!

    Gonzo – people just do this stuff for fun…. friends pay for it and stuff…

  • http://www.stevekalman.com steve K

    I was very interested to see your decision to leave the wide angle lens distortion in place. The inward curvature of the “wings” makes the temple more “all inclusive”.

    That’s yet another lesson from you, learned by me, intentional or not.

    Thanks

  • http://www.caseystanton.com Casey

    Beautiful shot, Trey! I was there and this is one of the best photos that really grabs the whole scene. Beautiful. What kind of post-process work did you do? Do you have the orig image so we can see the difference?

    Thanks!

  • http://www.stuckincustoms.com Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks :)

    +Steve K — yes I like the distortion a lot — I often get complaints about people that want straight lines all the time!

  • Paul

    Awesome shot!!!

  • Anonymous

    I find it funny that BM is all about so-called gift economy, but the organizers have different rules..50k people at $300 a ticket makes $15 million. But you do get portaloos for that. Preying on the same idiots that Jim Jones did.

  • Steve

    Thats full of awesomeness!

  • http://www.epicscenery.com Sean

    Amazing photo. The more I look at it, the more I feel as if I had ridden in on of those bikes and standing there myself.

  • https://plus.google.com/u/0/115011646412956679108/posts?hl=en Cliff Baise

    Awesome photo. I don’t think I got one from this POV. It was so much to take in that I was a little overwhelmed at where to point my camera, but next year I’ll be ready!

    Poor, Anonymous. He’s forgotten who he is. We are all born into this world with a sense of exploration and wonder. Adults make them forget by telling them that their daydreaming must stop. Join the real world, get a job. Get in debt. Suffer from a stress related illness. Take these prescribed chemicals. There…now you’re on track.

    So you’re argument is the $300 ticket. You know that’s only about $40 a day, right? That is a small price to pay to be at the most awesome place on earth. I would easily pay twice as much. How can you compare it to Jonestown? Leaving BM I felt more alive than ever. Now, where’s that Kool-Aid?
