This picture was one of the most popular pictures of this year’s l’instant Japon. It was taken at Tenryu-ji temple, one of the head temples of Rinzai Zen Buddhism, in Kyoto. It is listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The garden at this temple was just spectacular. In autumn when the colors of the leaves change, it shows a stunning view. Unfortunately we couldn’t be there in autumn, but I think Florence somehow captured the view.

By the way, this photo was taken in ONE SHOT. Florence told me some people just did not believe her. They insisted on three images being merged into one, even after Florence explained it was only one image. Believe me, people. I was there. She clicked the shutter just once and the image came out like this. No cut & paste. No multiple exposure. No manipulation!

Florence has received some exciting news, and I can’t wait to share it in here. Stay tuned!

Rock Garden

This is one of Florence’s newest pictures from our trip to Japan in January, 2008.

We went on a one-day trip to Kôyasan, listed in the UNESCO World Heritage list. When we got off the cable car that climbed a steep slope of the mountain (a little scary for Florence), there was snow on the ground! It was a very nice surprise.

Banryutei Rock Garden was completed in 1984 and is inside of Kongobuji temple in Kôyasan. Snow had fallen on the karesansui pattern creating a breathtaking view.
