Wow,
The colors are so intense. Been to Hokkaido but unfortunately did not visit this area at the time. Maybe time for another visit.
Aloha

The F2 (i.e. the slide) mode of the camera is really good for landscape photography, giving shots good tonal contrast and vivid colors. Thanks for the compliments. Pete

These are unbelievably gorgeous! I lived in Japan as a small boy (Misawa), and visited the Emperor's Palace several times. I found the country to be quite beautiful and rich with culture as well as unique architecture. I always enjoy your photos, you are quite gifted. Robert

I like doing sightseeing in Japan. The Japanese are disciplined, polite, considerate and courteous. The leisure, horticultural and cultural facilities are well kept and good looking (though a bit artificial because of the keeping providing for them). It is my wish to visit the countryside to have a look at the natural landscape which I think must be majestic in scale in view of the effort they pay to keep the environment green.

If you have time, take a look at the natural landscape shots I took in China in a place called Jiu Zhai Gou. I think by autumn time, there must be lots of places in the countryside of Japan that have similar views. Here is the link to my Jiu Zhai Gou photos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wk7leun...7608379059505/

A bit of a hard sale here but do hope you have a pleasant viewing there.
