Photographer's Note

This Great Buddha or "Daibutsu" in Kamakura, Japan stands at 13.34 metres. It was cast in 1252 A.D. The original temple that housed the statue was washed away by a tidle-wave in 1498, and the statue has been beaten by all weathers ever since.

Almost a year ago I took and posted the original version of this photo and wanted to retake it with a blue sky in the background. The original was a pale white sky. Recently I went back here with a visitor from abroad, so didn't have much chance to photograph the Great Buddha, but I managed to get a couple of shots, including this one.
