Fushimi-ku in Kyoto

It was a magical night in Kyoto, photographing torii. Torii are the traditional Japanese gates that mark the entrance to Shinto shrines. This one is at the entrance of Fushimi-ku in Kyoto, Japan.

Tilt-Shift Itsukushima Shrine

Photographed and enhanced with tilt-shifting last year during low tide, the Itsukushima Shrine (厳島神社), is a Shinto shrine on the island of Itsukushima (popularly known as Miyajima). It is in the city of Hatsukaichi in Hiroshima Prefecture in Japan. The shrine complex is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Japanese government has designated several buildings and possessions as National Treasures. Every day the water floods the whole torii gate and it appears to be floating.

Fuli Flowers

Fuli Flowers

Bei meiner Reise durch Hualien County in Taiwan kam ich durch den wunderschönen Ort Fuli. Die Aussicht vom Berg oben aus ist unglaublich – wie in einem Kinderbuch!
Jedes Jahr gibt es in Taiwan Blumenfestivals.
Auf diesem Foto sieht man den “Sixty Stone Mountain”. Ich kann diese Reise sehr empfehlen wenn man den Duft purer Natur geniessen möchte.
