My photographic notes about the four seasons in Kamakura or the gardens of Zen

The bell tower of Jochi-ji temple
The bell tower and the "Byakusin" (Juniper) trees were exposed to the dazzling sunlight of the late afternoon.
A Byakusin tree is symbolic of the zen discipline and is found in every zen garden of Kamakura. This evergreen tree is believed to keep its greenness without withering and grow persistently without stopping.
