The southern entry gateway (Niōmon) to the Kiyomizudera (Pure Water) temple also commonly known as the Akamon (Red Gate) in Kyoto, Japan. The photo was taken from within the temple grounds.

Please see this Wikipedia [link] for more information about the temple.

I missed getting a shot at dusk :(
But I thought this temple is normally closed by dusk?

apologies for the late response - we were there in late December and the sun was setting very early then - around 4pm each day. We were a bit pressed for time that day but somehow managed to get there in time : )

awesome light and colors... I like your composition too, this is classical but very efficient this way.
