Three Candles and a Torch on Silent Day

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Ayman Alansary

On the 31st of March 2014, night of Nyepi (Silent Day) in Bali Indonesia, the corridor lit with three candles and two hotel guests at the Conrad walk with their torch. The guests are not captured by the frame but their path is clear through their troche's light trail. Glittering stars shine in the corner as the sky was crystal clear amidst the entire island living the night in pitch black silence. Truly, a wonderful night!

Location: Bali, Indonesia
