Maple leaves in Tokei-ji temple

I noticed the subtle and beautiful gradation of green in the maple leaves in the gentle sunlight of spring afternoon.

This maple tree is located near the steep stone steps leading up to "Matsugaoka-bunko" (Matsugaoka library), where D.T.Suzuki spent the later years of his life giving himself up entirely to the perpetual quest for Zen and Buddhism.
