Temple Colors

It is very cold in Japan at the moment with snow falling heavily in many parts of the country. Back in summer when I visited Arashiyama, it was all blue skies and warm weather.

Visiting the gardens and Temples of Japan, the strong colors seem to be blue for the sky, green for the trees, some white/gray balance for the stone and the red used for many wooden building structures. The mix of this red,green and blue always make for a nice contrast.
