Thanthrimale sights, Sri Lanka.

Two young Buddhist priests on a stroll in the morning at Thanthrimale. One of the older priests who was watching me take many photos told me to watch out for 'Devatha eliya' - The light produced by the presence of Gods in the vicinity of this sacred site - on my photos. Here is one such photo. The physics I studied tells me that the yellow ball of light could be produced by internal reflections in the lenses of my Nikon camera. If you look closely below the yellow blob you will see a darkish 'ghost image' of the blob.
