Rock Garden
This is the Zen Garden in Ryoan-ji. From the viewing platform you attempt to see all 15 stones, but only 14 (or fewer) are visible from any position. This fifteenth century garden has all sorts of tricks. The far wall isn't even close to level and gives you a sense of depth from the forced perspective. The trees behind the back wall all have seasonal version (Cherry blossums, or falls colors, evergreen or deciduous.). The garden runs roughly east to west and the viewing platform is on the north side so the shadows change over the course of the day.

Garden And Pond
This is the view as you walk into the park. With the haziness, I wasn't happy with the photo, but I'm sure you could do a lot with a long lens.

Intermediate Egretta
Besides being Japan and the species being very different - I'm pretty sure it's not a Great Egret because the legs aren't black all the way up.

Model of Garden

This is a model of the Rock Garden.  The real garden is pretty hard to get far back from so this
gives you a good idea how it works.  You sit along the bottom edge and try to see all the stones - once you can,
you have reached a zen state.

Photographers In Garden
One of the things I like about Japanese photographers is that they all travel with tripods. No one looks at you strange when you show up with a tripod.

Lilies With Maple Behind
I like this photo because orange and maroon aren't common garden colours, but they work so well here.

Mori Shigemitu Garden
This is the only garden with a pond proper. This home is at the end of the road and borders the hill that once had the castle on it.

Pond With Carp
These were the most rowdy of the koi we saw in Japan. There were fish food stands along the water (honor system to pay) and the fish knew that people meant feeding time.

Sand Sea In Front
These buildings aren't publically accesable - they are along the path to the main viewing platform.

Stones In Temple
There are different ways to see this - perhaps these are islands in the ocean - peaks in the clouds - see it how ever you want.
