Pathway to Heaven by tchebotarev

I was lucky to visit Temple of Heaven early morning with lesser crowd of tourists. To capture the essence of crowds, I used 10 stopper ND filter to get long exposure, making the crowd into ephemeral ghosts.

From Wikipedia: The temple complex was constructed from 1406 to 1420 during the reign of the Yongle Emperor, who was also responsible for the construction of the Forbidden City in Beijing. The complex was extended and renamed Temple of Heaven during the reign of the Jiajing Emperor in the 16th century.
