I keep looking at this photo, but can't find the words I want to say and lay out here on this page. That's a compliment, by the way. I seem to be drawn into it.

great combination of heavenly colors.
The color will shine further if it has snowed after a while.

I like all these red tones and the view along the columns...

Have a nice day, Stu!

Stu, is this part of a bigger building or is it a walkway...? it is indeed a quiet corner.

Each journey begins with the first step

I fell in love with Kyoto on my first and only (so far) visit. I think I know where this is and it is how I remember it - beautiful composition and atmosphere!!!
