17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
A Japanese temple and a raven at sunset.

Bumping into a sacred temple in the city of Kyoto is quite easy. But having the opportunity to capture a flying crow, a symbol of the Gods, right above Shogunzuka Temple, is just something that I wouldn't have hoped for. The winter sunset enlightens the temple and the raven, that passed through the picture by sheer luck.
