The Impressions of Autumn (23)

Two years ago, I have a series known as The Impressions of Autumn.

I don’t think I have showcased all the photos.

This is a continuation of the series.dsc_0240

The picture was taken in Tateyama Kurobe, Japan during Autumn.

We were visiting a traditional Japanese house. Our eyes were captured as we gazed out to the garden.

These colors give us the real feel of Autumn; we could stay there and have our Japanese tea forever!

The Impressions of Autumn (11)

We were on our way travelling in Tateyama Kurobe, Japan.

This picture was taken on a car and therefore a little bit blur due to movments.

There is just a magical array of colors in the hills.

 

Autumn was in the trees and everywhere.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine ( Through Trees and Leaves 3 )

This week’s photo challenge is Shine.

I like photographing against the light; in particular I like photographing trees and leaves against in coming light.dsc_0226a

If the camera is set as Automatic, this usually poses a problem as the light sensor will sense there is strong light and the aperture will automatically reduce, giving a picture which is too dark.

I intend to upload a series of photos which has been shot against the light.

Here is a photo taken up in the hills of Tateyama Kurobe, Japan in the Autumn.

Please enjoy!

Rocky Mountain – Mist and Snow

We enjoyed very much the fall foliage in South Korea last Autumn.

For most part of our trip, the weather was fine. However, the weather changed quickly when we were making our way up Daedunsan in a cable car. By the time we were up in the mountain, rain has started. We hiked for a distance up the mountain but the rain was so heavy that we have to retreat. This picture taken just before we retreated, shows the mountain and the foliage in the mist and the rain.DSCF3417

Several years back, we also made a trip up the mountains in Japan. It was late Autumn. When we made our way up the mountains of Tateyama- Kurobe, there were no signs of snowing.DSC_0114

Snow was falling when we reached almost the top. We didn’t have any thick clothes. Many of the pictures taken there appeared as black and white. However, this one taken of the rock slope do have some colors.

The last image was taken in Zhangjiajie, China.DSC_0095

The view of a stone column jutting up in the mist with trees on top was just spectacular!

Mist and snow always add a bit of mystery to mountains.
