Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror ( Risturin Garden 2 )

If you like my post of yesterday then you probably like this one as well.

Again, it is a picture taken in the Ritsurin Garden, Shinkoku after a heavy down pour.cimg5549

This helped to dispel any dust particle in the air and resulted in a clear image.

The reflection in the lake is again fascinating!

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror ( Ritsurin Garden )

There are no themes for this week’s photo challenge, so I am going back to the challenge of Mirror.

It was a sheer joy walking in the Ritsurin Garden in Shinkoku after the heavy rain.dscf0419

The garden is carefully planned and plants manicured.

The reflection of the landscape in the garden lake was just perfect.

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Edge ( for Suicide ?)

This week’s theme for Photo Challenge is Edge.

Tojinbo  is a one kilometer long stretch of rugged basalt cliffs along the Sea of Japan coast north of Fukui City.

These are the cliffs where some Japanese may jump off to kill themselves.dsc_0024

The rocky coastline has been carved out by the waves, leaving deep chasms and precipitous bluffs that tower up to 30 meters above the water below. The coarse, pillar-shaped rocks look like bundles of hexagonal and pentagonal rods and are a unique geologically formation that can be seen in several places in the world and nowhere else in Japan.

We spent half a day going up and down the area, admiring at the scenery and taking photos.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror ( Japanese Footbridge )

This week’s photo challenge is Mirror.

It was a delight to walk across this Japanese footbridge in the gardens of Shinkoku, Japan.cimg5568

The environment was quiet and pleasant, the air was crispy clean and the water below was serene.

The reflection of the footbridge in the water and the koi swimming slowly in the water were just timeless . . . . . . . . . . . .

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror ( Hokkaido Autumn )

This week’s DP photo challenge is Mirror.

It is sort of romantic up there in the lakes of Hokkaido in Autumn.007

Colored foliage and a lone yacht with perfect reflection in the placid pool.

A perfect mirror image in the Autumn lakes – a paradise for photographers!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror ( Sky )

This week’s DP photo challenge is Mirror.

A serene water surface is a mirror.

Here is a picture – the focus of which is not the green lotus leaves but the sky above with the sun and the clouds.11960017_1164400920243713_5924525724566303271_n

The quiet water serves as a mirror.

The picture was taken by my classmate YM Chan for whom credit is due.

Please enjoy🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning ( By the Sea in Hokkaido )

Woke up in the morning and found it was misty.

Got out of the hotel and walked as far as I could.

Came to a river estuary where the river meets the sea.004

The place was completely quiet apart from the occasional quacks of the wild ducks.

I sat on the pebble protected shallow beach, watching the ducks.006

By now more ducks have moved out from the beach; I presumed that they didn’t like me the stranger.

I admired how blissful these ducks were and have the place almost completely to themselves – except for the intrusion of this stranger.
