Fushimi Inari Taisha・伏見稲荷大社
With Kyoto reopening from a successful mitigation of the COVID-19 pandemic, I thought it would be auspicious to visit the famous Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine before it gets crowded again.
Beautiful morning sunlight illuminates a hundred vermillion gates (torii), each one purchased in gratitude to the gods for success in one of numerous endeavors.
My idea was to shoot with a really wide lens for a different look, but ultimately I ended up cropping back down to the essential elements of this classic view.
