Another view back in the softer light before it started lightly raining. I took my time to enjoy the walk back in the drizzle.
Rather than looping round via the north west and past the Torokko Arashiyama Station トロッコ嵐山駅 that's snuggled beneath the edge of the forest, I backtracked to go through the separate eastern half of the grove.
With the light from the opposite direction it gave a different vibe.
Did I mention there'd be a lot of bamboo photos?
Wandering through, the changes of density and light shift the visual mood.
Everyone soaking in the moment as the clouds moved in and softened the light.
