Another one from the outing last week that also produced the previous post about the carving on the wooden gate. This shot is part of the wall of the little relaxation hut in the stone-lantern gardens behind Nishimura Stone Lanterns in Kyoto Japan. The hut can be seen in previous posts, here and here.

I thought I'd give it a try as a desktop background, but since I'm still really digging the stark tree” desktop background that I posted the other day, today I'll try it on my portrait-oriented second monitor (as mentioned in “Going Vertical”), using this next version....

That’s some great composition there! I think I prefer the vertical shot.

These are really cool. I love earthly shades.
