Daily Photo – Red Gate After Rain

When I’m someplace interesting, I usually set the alarm to get up quite early. Painful, yes. And then, when I’m in that half-wake state, I stumble to the window to look at the clouds and weather. If it’s a mess, I don’t go, and joyfully crawl back into bed. That’s just about the best feeling in the world.

But, sometimes, I force myself to go out anyway… that is what happened on this day. It was one of those frustrating mornings when it was raining — which makes carrying an umbrella + tripod + two cameras + camera bag quite a drain! But after walking a few kilometeres, I found this giant red gate that led to a quiet temple complex. I set up for a few shots before venturing into the beyond.

    Story of my life! haha.. But I hate it when you crawl back in bed only to wake up and find that the morning turned out perfect for some photo’s. :(

  • Eden Brackstone

    Fantastic shot, I love the colors. And I know that feeling all too well, hahah…

    Wow! This is awesome shot even in a frustrating weather condition Trey!

  • Ken Liu

    very nice shot, Trey. I need to go to Japan!

  • casusan

    Cool shot Trey! Yes, it was worth getting up for! We just got 3 of your prints on canvas – one is bamboo forest from Japan – awesome – first class job of printing them!

  • Simon Morris

    Nice shot Trey, good composition… I’m just waiting for a Samurai Swordsman to appear saying “private, no admittance!” :-)
    Looks like the sunshine came out in the end… plenty of exposure on the ‘beyond’

  • Patrick Ahles

    Great shot. I definitely need to get up earlier to get shots like this one :P

  • Eden Brackstone

    In regards to your search for cool Christmas presents… I have recently ordered one of these:
    It was an impulse buy, it just looks so cool! As for my Christmas expectations… I have a feeling I’ll be joining ‘The Clubhouse’ in the near future ;-)

  • Gail in Montana

    Great shot, Trey!! Glad you decided to get up!!! Thanks for sharing, having a good Saturday, all.

  • Stuck In Customs

    Thanks very much :)

  • Nick

    Great shot today Trey – worth getting out of bed for!! It rains lots in Japan…I’m here at the moment and was out shooting in the rain the other day – pretty frustrating but then you get lots of those cool ‘neon’ reflections

  • Paul

    I can relate to those stormy mornings when it appears to be too cold and crappy for photography, and then as I slip back into bed I think “what if the weather breaks and I miss one of those amazing photographic moments???” You can always reward yourself with a mid-day nap for getting up early to photograph the sunrise.

    Trey what lens did you use in this shot? I am going to guess a wide angle? thanks

  • Bryan

    Love the reds and greens, but have never liked these leaning, converging, distorted images.

  • David LaSpina / JapanDave

    Awesome shot, Trey! It goes without saying that your Japan photos are the best ;)

    Normally I’m with you on the waking up early, but my willpower has been failing me lately… too cold in these Japanese houses. Alarm goes off, I crawl out of my futon–ack, cold! Jump back in. I tell myself I’m formulating a plan to get up, but moments later I’m back asleep.

    Gotta get better at that.
