One of the main places I wanted to visit and photography during my recent trip to Kyoto was the Kiyomizu Temple. I was able to go but unfortunately the grounds close at 6pm, which is far too early during the warmer months to capture the sunset, as was my goal. I took what photos I could and then, a bit disappointed, headed back down the hill toward Kyoto. Thankfully, this leads right through some beautiful old districts, and taking me directly past the Yasaka Pagoda. Not only did it take me right past it, but it put me there right at sunset so I was able to capture some amazing colors in the sky. As far as consolation prizes go, this one was pretty great!
Along with today’s photo, I have a new photography quick tip up, covering how to use split toning – a simple tool and one of my favorites, and it’s especially nice because it’s available both in Lightroom and Photoshop. You can see how I used it to create this image in the video below the photo.
