Autumn leaves in Ao-komyo-ji (Kyoto)

I made a brief tour of Kyoto to seek the final flaming beauty of the late autumn which is surely ending.

The bitter coldness of a long winter has just begun to reign over this ancient noble city and forcefully urges once-colorful autumn leaves to scatter in its chilly wind.

Soon fresh snow will come down over the dried fallen leaves to lightly cover them with its pure whiteness.
