A Parting Shot of the Temple
Sometimes while on a little afternoon / evening / night photo adventure, I literally run out of energy at the end. This is bad news! I put so much effort into running around, getting all the shots, carrying around all my equipment, fully concentrating, and the like... at the end, it's all I can do to get back to home base. However, this night, as I was leaving this beautiful complex of temples in Kyoto, I stopped to take one look behind me.
I had first passed this place in the afternoon when there was no rain. During my shoot, rain fell and changed everything. Of course, the lights were totally different, so I just had to muster up a little more energy for a final shot. For these sorts, I usually put my tripod on its lowest-leg setting and fire away for maximum reflectivity.
