"I was taking photos of this torii from onshore, and was groaning on how dissatisfied I was about the scene, given I had high expectations of this renowned attraction. As I wandered around searching for the best spot, this colorful sunset appeared! I pondered a little: how often do I see this, and how long could this last?!? I immediately took off my jeans (in my boxer briefs), and dragged myself into the freezing water nearly waist high, so that I could capture this three-minute glory. A torii (literally meaning bird home) is a traditional Japanese gate most commonly found at the entrance of a Shinto shrine, where it symbolically marks the transition from profanity to sacredness. Onshore behind where I took this photo, is the Shirahige Shrine, which is located along the west shore of Lake Biwa."
