The sky was dark and it was snowing – something which I didn’t expect.
The view was breath taking!
Autumn is my favorite season.
Summer is usually too hot and got even hotter with global warming.
Winter is too cold which makes me feel uncomfortable.
Here is a picture taken in my trip to Tateyama – Kurobe, Japan.
We were up in the hills. Some leaves have already changed their colors. The light shone through some of the leaves.
The mountain at the back has some clouds / mist over it, rendering the whole picture picturesque.
We were up in the mountains of Tateyama in Japan.
It snowed and was freezingly cold.
The photo was taken just before we took the cable car down to the reservoir.
It was difficult to achieve a good balanced picture – the clouds and the snow cladded mountains were overexposed while the valley below was underexposed.
It is great that the red cable car stood out from the picture!
As part of our “Alpine” travel to Mount Tateyama in Japan, we took a cable car from Daikanbo (2316m above sea level) to Kurobeko (1455m above sea level) and descended to somewhere near the Kurobeko reservoir.
We have a good stroll around the reservoir until we approached the dam.
It was almost winter, the only trees that still have leaves remaining have a striking yellowish golden color. They look great against a dark winter background of hills and rocks.
Can’t resist photographing them. Filled with awe, I took some far way views with the snow-capped mountain and the colorful trees.
So, it was an odyssey to the mountains of Tateyama that one will never forget.
