Miyajima Serenity

This is the great floating torii gate, or Itsukushima, in Miyajima, Japan. The photo was taken at low tide so nearly the whole gate was visible. It's especially striking with the contrast of green algae with the orange gate, blue water and pink overcast sky. My favorite part, though, is the little bird perched on its right side, which I didn't notice until I later went through my photos.
