Lovely colours in this beautiful composition. Is red symbolical of prayers or devotion?

@Mireille T.: Thank you. Red (or this kind of orange-red) is the most common color at Shinto shrines, but to be honest I have never heard the reason why...

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Most beautiful.

The red or red/orange certainly draws my attention as it must for those in traditional or modern dress as they come to pray.
