This is Itsukushima shrine as viewed from back out toward where the torii gate is (at low tide. Obviously).

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

This is wonderful! What a view! The green background, the red shaping out the structure, the Y carpet leading to the buildings AND the girl with the cellphone......new and old, tradition versus trendy....what a complex composition! And....I love it!

So adore the blending of built structure with the landscape - such harmony.
