11 Selected Photos from November 2014

November 2014 is full of my best photography of autumn colors in this year. I traveled in various places in the east and the west, and shooted numerous autumn colors of Japan. I hope you can enjoy them. From now on, I'm beginning to change my primary target from autumn colors to illuminations and snowscapes. I hope I can encounter more of the beautiful landscapes of Japan.

Then, let’s look at the 11 selected photos from November 2014!

I couldn't believe that nobody was visiting this beautiful mountain while I was here. One-hour-ride of the train. This is the only thing that you need to come from Kyoto.

I was amazed to see a row of Metasequoia which runs over 2 miles down. This street is designated as one of the top 100 views of street trees of Japan, and is said to show red colors in the end of autumn and white color in winter. Now the trees are green and energetic.

 

10. Sacred Mountain of Yoshino Created the Road to Heaven

The leaves are purely red and the street is decorated by some red fallen leaves. It is like leading to heaven.
