Itsukushima Torii in Miyajima island black and white photography. Long Exposure. Japan

Itsukushima Torii Study II


I took this picture of the Itsukushima red torii during my trip to Japan in 2010. It rained heavily all day on Miyajima island near Hiroshima city. I had a bit of difficulty in visiting the shrine, but from a photographic point of view I was lucky, because I was able to capture a wonderful mood for black and white. This is a 200 seconds long exposure taken under the storm. This photo is part of "Ukiyo, the Floating World" project.
