A beautifully framed shot Glenn! I find it very interesting that they have chosen to paint the ends of the beams in white! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: Thanks Eric. The white painted ends were unique to any other shrines or temples that we saw. Not sure why they were painted this way. Decorative? Maybe.

The details are amazing. Too bad the sky was blown out, but in that light you couldn't control it, I'm sure.

@Judy aka L@dybug: Yes. The sky was one of those "white" overcast skies and it was really hard to control exposures & contrasts.
