Todaiji Temple Steps

Nara, Japan

Nara is a city steeped in history with many temples dotted around. Visiting early in the morning was best to avoid crowds of tourists. Looking for simple compositions, I enjoyed photographing some of the long staircases that led to different temples. This one looked particularly ancient.
