I dearly miss Autumn in Hokkaido, Japan.
This is a casual shot taken on our trip some years back.
As always, we regret that we didn’t stay a bit longer, taken in more of the views.
Taking landscape pictures is my favorite hobby.
As such, I don’t have many close ups or pictures illustrating Ornate.
Here is one showing ice carving at Sapporo.
Colored light fell on the ice carvings; making them “ornate”.
I could not hide my joy when I approached the the island of Itsukushima on a ferry.
What appeared before my eyes was the red colored Great Torii, straddling over the clear water.
In the background were the green hills and the Itsukushima Shrine.
I have seen many photos of the Torii gate before , but never have I seen it so outstanding against the tranquil environment.
We have colors all around us in the Fall.
Let’s take a trip to Tateyama Kurobe, Japan to see what Autumn is like.
Here the red leaves appear to me so romantic!
Fishing by the river.
This is one of the happy places I visited in Shinkoku, Japan.
Although I didn’t have the chance to fish there, I can appreciate the happiness fishing there taking in the views of the arch bridge and the beautiful surrounding.
Green is my colour.
Here is a picture taken in the Ritsurin Garden, Shinkoku, Japan.
The tree branches were dripping down to the lake.
The picture was taken after heavy rain which stirred up the lake water.
The picture was basically in different shades of green.
Up on a hill we saw this panoramic view while in Shinkoku.
In the foreground is a suspension bridge. The structures run for miles and miles, connecting many islands, almost stretching to infinity.
The type of structures also change from suspension bridge to cable stayed bridges.
It is a big engineering feat and connects so many places and people!
