"F"ierce Dragon



This fierce looking dragon was photographed at Korinji temple (広琳寺) in Utsunomiya city. Wherever I visit shrines and temples, I find myself photographing it... Probably, I am fascinated by the dragon.

This is a Outdoor Wednesday, Watery Wednesday, and ABC Wednesday entries. "F" is for "fierce" and "fascinated".

    And don't worry, my husband was only out in bare feet in the snow for 20 seconds...

  12. Dragons are fascinating! I like the silhouette approach to this image as it makes the dragon look dark and indeed fearsome. Good show!
