I was guided on a memorable trip to Korankei valley in eastern Japan in the autumn of 2013. The valley is famous for its beautiful colors during the autumn. The center and origin of the beautiful seasonal colors is the existence of a zen temple built in 1427. The monks planted trees around the temple with beautiful seasonal colors. There are also market stalls in the autumn by the bridge and the trees and the river are illuminated in the evening. We were there in the beginning of November and the colors were not at their maximum yet but it was still a wonderful place to visit. This little road in Korankei valley leads upward to a little temple.
When I arrived to Japan in the beginning of November 2013 to visit my son that lived there at the time the captain told us that Mount Fuji could be seen in the morning light from the plane I managed to snap a few quick shots before I had to put the camera down as we were coming in for landing at Nagoya.
In later years Hyllie station has been my starting point or arrival point on my journeys to see my children who both live abroad. Here you can see the round roof of the station that is essentially a shelter from the rain.
As this week´s theme on The Daily Post´s weekly Photography Challenge is Rounded I update this post to share it on the Daily Post.
We are in Finspång in Östergötland in Sweden. The industries of Finspång originated in the sixteenth century with royal factories for cannons and cannon balls. Finspång castle was built by Louis de Geer, part of a walloon family imported to Sweden for their know-how in iron mining and iron production.. The picture is taken in the autumn of 2014 and published before on From My Horizon.
We are back in Borås, this time on the street were I lived while in Borås walking home in the afternoon when I suddenly saw both ends of a rainbow. For once I used the Iphone as I wasn´t able to catch both ends of the rainbow with my ordinary camera. I used to walk this street every day to work. Sadly no pots of gold waiting where the rainbow ended.
