Winter Flight

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 29 January 2011 in Architecture.

The gate of Chion-in Temple (知恩院) seems to take flight into the late afternoon sky.

I have been busy and am currently not in Kyoto, so please forgive my not visiting your blogs. I look forward to catching up soon.

Indeed, the characteristic curve cleverly disguises the massive construction in those roofs . . flight does look possible !

Such a bright and refreshing view! I crave the blue of the sky. Your composition is superb. :)

Great angle on this temple. It really looks like it's about to takeoff. Well seen
