Going Wide: Lens Artist Challenge # 165

This week Patti at P.A. Moed has set the challenge of “Going Wide”. Thank you Patti for this wonderful topic !

Like many other photographers I frequently use the wide angle lens of my camera for landscapes but as well for city pictures. Photos taken from vantage points are my favorite but I also like city scapes with a beautiful foreground, such as a river or a lake.

Perfect Ponds in Japan

Today, I am showing memories of my trip to Japan in 2019 again.

Japanese Gardens are very carefully and beautifully laid out and they always feature a pond with marvelous reflections. I would love to see these gardens in autumn with the colored foliage. Perhaps next year … ?

This is my first contribution to the Thursday Doors Challenge. Thank you Dan, for hosting this wonderful challenge. In my archives I hardly found any door pictures. But I am going to look out for doors, from now on !

While I was traveling through Japan I visited many temples, in Kyoto perhaps too many …
Close to the Philosopher’s Path in Kyoto I looked at Eikando Temple, beautiful and but also very crowded. On a short detour I then discovered nearby Honen-in Temple that was visited by only few people. The temple area was much smaller and the buildings could not be entered but I really liked the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere and aesthetic design of the temple park .

Always looking forward to your feedback
