The pathway to the temple on snake island, so called because it is strangely inhabited by hundreds of snakes. I say strangely because the snakes are nowhere else to be found along this shore. Hence a temple has been built and folk-lore stories exist as to how and why the snakes are here. Access to the temple and island is only possible at low-tide.
With the high tide and water flooded over the pathway, I can't barely tell there is an island. If not for the top of the temple it would just look more like some rocks in the ocean. I guess one has to coordinate with the tide level when plan for visiting. Perhaps the snake are trap on the island and can only remain on the island and if no one ever bring one over than they can reproduce else where. Or perhaps they found their haven on the island. Due to fear, people are not kind to snake in many part of the world.
Oh my goodness, hundreds of snakes? You can be sure that nobody would ever make me go there :-) I am just thinking loud but all snakes can swim, yes? Lordy-lord. A great image for the TOM, especially cool as we cannot see any path but the only evidence is the handrails connecting the island with the beach.
This is a very special contribution to the theme. One can only imagine the existence of the path from the handrails. Amazing is that hundreds of snakes live on the island, but but none on the area elsewhere. A well composed image.
The image is delightful with the side light making the water transparent while the handrail defines the path Too bad you couldn't visit (not)! I'm with Barbara here on the snakes! GLV, Pat
