The Tori Gate

Newer Older

What a perfect post-storm dusk! I was going photo-crazy.

This is a replica of the exact same place I have been near Nikko, Japan. The Nikko one is quite hard to shoot! There are many things in the way, and setting up for the ideal shot is no easy matter. Plus, when I was in Japan, the sky was not so great that evening. It's the luck of the cards sometimes!

But this evening in Disney World was ultra-perfect. Epcot is the park that has all the little international areas. Japan, Germany, France, etc etc. It's all a little silly and fake -- but it's also very cool and scenic! I don't know how it can be both... but it is. Those Disney imagineers do an incredible job of making things look dreamy. I do the best I can to capture the magic as I saw it.

    This is a really nice composition Trey. I love how the curves go together..the foreground pebbles, the top of the structure and the highlight areas in the clouds.

    great shot Trey! if it weren't for the golf ball, it could be Japan :)

    I had the same trouble with the Torii at Miyajima Island. The tides and the skies wouldn't cooperate.
