Autumn leaves in Koto-in of Daitoku-ji (Kyoto)

I visited Kyoto to enjoy the beautiful coloring of the autumn leaves in this ancient city.

In the tranquil garden of the small temple, a passing gentle shower fell on the leaves which were taking on brilliant autumnal tints.

Just after the rainfall, the graceful colors of the leaves, which had been purified by the cold rainwater, impressed me deeply with their sudden overwhelming beauty.

A series of pictures which I took during this weekend trip to Kyoto will be presented for some time so as to keep a memory of the unforgettable sights of this fast passing season.
