If you've traveled to this blog more than a few times you no doubt think you've seen this photo (or something close to it) perhaps a little too often here. Yet I can't seem to stop taking these photos again and again, and in the autumn it's even more irresistable as that soft, soft golden light comes in low and caresses the wood of some old temple.

I confess that I am not really happy with this composition, but the light was so low that I really needed a tri-pod and all I had was the support from a beam at the temple. So I had to take the photo that the temple would give me.
