The Road Less Traveled

The best locations are usually the ones you don't hear about. When I'm traveling I like to try and find the hidden gems., the places that are not the big tourist attractions. At the Enkaku Temple in Kamajura Japan, I was pleasantly surprised to find a temple without many visitors. It was one of the smaller temples and I for that reason many people probably didn't think it was worth the time to go, but I found it to be one of my favorites. 

As I walked around this peaceful temple  taking pictures I found a beautiful section that caught my eye. As I was about to take my shot, a monk appeared and walked through my frame at precisely the right moment. He was gone as quickly as he appeared but his presence made the image stronger and captured the essence of my time there.
