The photographer: Melissa Gratiot of Rocklin

Behind the lens: I had an amazing monthlong trip to Asia (Shanghai, China; Bangkok, Thailand; Singapore; Narita, Japan) last year. While visiting the Narita Temple Gardens in Japan, I was fascinated at the absolute beauty, calmness and Zen-like feel in the gardens. I sat on a rock and captured this view. It was a relaxing place to sit and meditate and a great way to end our trip as we headed to the airport back to California.
