Such stark relief in this perfectly even light . . the gentle touches of color hint at warmth within.

I love how the branches just spread every direction equally - like a "snowbranch explosion!" I also really loke your composition and placement here,,,the tree may be the subject but the overall scene is the show and the tree does not interfere at all...the temple is cleanly and plainly visible and the mood is cool and yet warm if that makes sense. I also like the distant hills...this is a special place to come to. Thank you for bringing us there!

@Denny Jump Photo: You are very kind. In fact, this is what you see when you step through the gate (a photo I posted a few days ago). It was so startlingly beautiful that I never really "composed" the shot very well: I just stood there and raised my camera. I didn't know what else to do. I was amazed.

That's OK, GJC, I do the same thing..."instant emotional connection," I call it...It's how I almost always do it but, shhh, don't tell the masters! Beautiful, GJC!
