Falling Ginkgo at Iwato Ochiba Shrine - Kyoto, Japan
A friend of mine picked me up at 6.30 am this morning. We drove a car and headed to North while the central city of Kyoto is not ready for full Autumn colours yet. I admired surrounding four mature ginkgo trees around a red gate, torii, at the shrine. I have got back Kyoto for my photo assignment on November. All the photographers of Kyoto will be incredibly busy this month!
