The delicate and graceful intersection between human design and natural glory. Light and shadow interplay epitomizes this very well. Japanese architecture understands and incorporates this.

    Thanks you Jacqi and Walea. This is in my top 5 fave moments from Japan. It was picture perfect late afternoon sunshine and the most elegant of temples. Thank you both for the comments.

    I really love these shadows. I wonder if the builders took the sun and shadows into considerations while building. Di
