I have a particular feeling for Nijo-jo, gardens and palace! Your view here is amazing! You managed to capture the trees and then the garden, buildings....and the eyes travel in awe to the distant silhouette of that historic mountain!Most certainly the sky helps to create quite an atmosphere here!I keep thinking WHERE were you located to get such a splendid view?!

@Japanalia: Thx Japanalia! Sorry for my late response but am moving house at the moment. This was taken from the lookout tower on the North West corner.

Neat. I love how everything came together in this shot. A little vibrant color and a dramatic sky.

I've been at the exact same spot but my photos did not come out as good as yours. Nice framing and composition!

Marvelous composition. I envy how you are able to capture such a comprehensive scene without losing compositional integrity.
