Bridge to shrine under troubled sky

This is in Takayama, Gifu, in a very traditional area of the city where they try to maintain the bulidings in a very old style. This bridge leads to a shrine about a mile down the road. You can see the torii which marks the entrance. It was very crappy weather when I made this trip, but, ironically, in photography sometimes crappy weather makes for the best photos.
