A travel guide or guidebook is very useful for FIT (Free And Independant Travel) or self-guided travelers, especially when you visit to some historic travel destinations. Take Todaiji Temple for instance. Todaiji Temple within the Nara Park in Nara, Japan, is the largest timber structure ever built in the world, eventhough what we can see now is only two third of its original size before being reconstructed after fire damage. It was built to house one of the largest bronze Buddha statue in Japan. Japan-guide.com online Japan travel guide told me all these. Without which Todaiji Temple is just aother huge architecture to me, and to anybody else who doesn’t know the facts and history behind.
Some EXIF info: Captured with Nikon D7000 and Nikkor 10-24mm UWA lens attached. Shot in Program Auto mode, with Shutter speed 1/160 sec and Aperture f6.3. Focus distance was set to 12mm. Auto ISO 100. Auto White Balance. No flash fired and +1/3EV exposure value being compensated with Matrix metering.
It was drizzling out there with overcast sky when I was there in Spring this year, so slight increase in exposure value was needed to capture a proper exposed object in the frame. View it in larger size via my Flickr page and you will see how tiny are those people in front of the gigantic wooden temple! Hope you could see it in person to really appreciate. Japan, if without the threat of radioactive recently, is one of my top recommended travel destinations. Even so, I’m visiting Japan once again this Autumn!
