Lotus leaves in Tsurugaoka-hatchimangu

I saw the scarlet leaves of Hazenoki (Rhus succedanea L.) beautifully lying on the blue-green leaf of sacred lotus.

Summer is going far away and autumn is arriving here finally.

It seemed to me that the amazing and unexpected combination of these colorful leaves finely represented the seasonal turning period from summer to autumn.
