morning light on roof - Version 2

Rays of light filter through trees and smoke at Kegongi temple in Tanigumi, Gifu prefecture, Japan.


When I first posted photos from this day, I choose the landscape version of this shot. Recently, the portrait version of this has grown on me. The scale of the trees figures more here. I also like the patterns of the tiled roof too. Of course, smoke and light are cool and so this one gets posted too.


Groundskeepers at the temple were burning the sweepings from the temple grounds. I had just come out of the forest into this scene. Lucky timing really.
