@Veronique: Thanks for the visit and the comment. There are actually one on each side: one for selling the incense, and the other for lighting it.
Excellent picture, beautiful light. The smoke is going to the Gods?

@Jaap: Yes, and it is considered good for you to stand in the incense smoke and brush it over your body, especially any area that needs healing. And don't we all need that!
Beautiful light in this shot GJC! I think I need a pass through the smoke...... ;-)

Love the colors, the blue tones make the fire in the incense altars really glow and you captured the smoke very well. I would like to stand in that healing smoke :)

this is nice.... like the soft lighting and the smoke effects from the incense offerings... often we neglected these small details but you have captured it well & in a creative way

A nice atmosphere - makes me reflect on how little I know of Eastern religious history and practice.

Mysterious atmosphere with these blue tints and the smoke which flies away towards the gods.

I love that smokey appearance. Incense is something I don't mind smelling the entire day.

This looks like it could be Chion In. And you've succeeded where I have so often failed in capturing the smoke from the incense burning. Super shot.
