The cable car has brought us to the top of the mountain – Tateyama, Japan.
The sky was dark and it was snowing – something which I didn’t expect.
Looking down from the top, I realize the great height from which we were viewing.
The mountains looked dark and somewhat stern and I could see part of the Kurobe reservoir at the bottom.
The view was breath taking!
Just want to share some more photos of lavender I have taken in Hokkaido, Japan.
The top picture is very similar to the one I shared last week – very European.
The other two were taken as close ups.
One having a butterfly among the lavender.
The other one showing close up of the lavender field.
I am thinking of another visit to Hokkaido, Japan.
It is a place I don’t mind visiting and re-visiting.
It looks so much like Europe!
Again, the picture was taken with my first generation of electronic compact camera.
Here are a few photos I have taken with my first generation of compact electronic camera with only 4 pixels.
The top two show a panoramic view of the lavender fields in Furano, Japan.
It is a place you would just like to stay on forever until it becomes dark and the day is done.
The bottom picture was taken just before it becomes too dark.
The theme for this week’s photo challenge is Half Light.
This is a photo taken with the first generation of electronic compact camera – with only 4 Megapixel.
The upper half has light coming from the cloudy sky.
Think the lower half is more interesting – full of lavender.
But both halves blend in quite harmoniously.
As with many of my posted lavender photos, the picture was taken in Furano, Hokkaido in Japan.
I like paintings, equally, I like photos which has painting qualities.
Here is photo from Hokkaido which I have turned into an Oil Painting using a software.
The software is from a free download – known as Faststone.
For this photo, I like the Oil painting effect more than the original photo.
