Autumn Comes to the Shrine ~ Beautiful Japan

Praying at the shrine is a more beautiful affair in autumn.


Not all are fully turned yet. You can see a lot of green in the left side. But trees that are where the light hits, wow, they are getting pretty!

This is at a somewhat hidden shrine. Those are bamboo trees you see in the background. Kannon-sama is in front of them. I really enjoy these shrines that are tucked away where you wouldn't necessarily expect to run into anything. The red leaves are just bonus! (but what a great bonus!)

Hi there! David LaSpina is an American photographer and translator lost in Japan, trying to capture the beauty of this country one photo at a time and searching for the perfect haiku.
