Autumnal tints: Kencho-ji

Autumnal tints: Kencho-ji

The rapid fall of air temperature gives rise to the exquisite chemistry of deciduous trees for drying their leaves and letting them wear bright autumn colors before scattering.

This transformation makes it possible for these trees to endure cold winter and to revive in next spring.

The world is continuing to change ceaselessly moment by moment. We can sense this law of nature by noticing the various transformations of all living things that appear in the rapid changing of the seasons.

The autumn leaves, dyed in vivid flame colors, are glowing brilliantly in the afternoon sunlight that is beginning to tilt. The greenish-blue copper roof of the temple building is accentuating these blazing colors gently.
