I spent some time wondering around this old Temple area in the village of Nozawa Onsen ~ Honshu ~ Japan. Nozawa being an old, old Japanese village dating back to 400AD. I waited for the longest time for the contrasty light to subside and just before the sun set, the light turned slightly muted and golden making for a workable image to be captured. It was quite peaceful, albeit freezing to sit and wait – the occasional gong from the temple echoing out across the valley. Thanks for having a look and comments always appreciated.
