    An amazing selection of colours. Looks like a great place to go shootin'.

    I've been there - awesome!
    I quite like this shot - beautiful colours.

    I do find those lamp things to be distractions...and I hate seeing crap like that when I visit these types of places... but alas silly things like safety need to be taken into consideration

    I work hard to find angles without the lamps and other distractions...but sometimes it's just not possible....

    everyone. It IS an amazing place to shoot but I do find myself trying to avoid those $%# lights. I also always question my composition, my camera settings etc etc so by then end of the day I am exhausted!

    the colours are wonderful. did you also take one moving over to the right so the path over the bridge was there? I can see so many angles to take here it's a wonder you are not still there!

    Thank you Bambi,
    Good suggestion..hmmm..I didn't. By the time we reached the Japanese Gardens it was hard to get a picture without tourists in it. But maybe having the tourists in the pic is okay? (but not the two men wearing Davy Crocket hats!!)
