Autumn leaves: Engaku-ji (Obai-in)

Autumn leaves: Engaku-ji (Obai-in)

Although it is early in the afternoon, the sun has begun to decline too soon, shedding its ashen-gray light over this small shady garden.

Outside the old wooden gate, in the bright slanting rays of the sun, the autumn leaves are glowing dazzlingly like the setting sun of the midsummer.

The cold air and stillness of winter are beginning to dominate this garden. The flaming colors of the autumn leaves are secretly sneaking up through the gate, but they cannot warm the chillness of this garden any longer.
