What a lovely looking temple, can you please tell us where it is and a little bit about it?

Oh how I wish you had put up where this temple was taken. Let me guess ...Kyoto? hmmmm maybe not as the Golden Temple in Kyoto is larger.

This is a very solid photograph, by that I mean it is balanced, you have included a nice frame of leaves all around it and at the top. The colour palette of primarily yellow and greens is rich and further excites the eye, it is off center placement of focal point that works. AND to top it off the sky was cooperating with you on this glorious day and gave you much texture with clouds. A delight to review.

Thank you for the information, Japan is on my "to do" list, I shall make sure this temple is on it too.

author says:

Make sure you go, it was our first visit, so we took a tour. Well worth it. We loved everything about it, except perhaps some of the very small hotel rooms. We are definitely going back, and feel we now know enough to do it on our own.
