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.
One of the rivers flowing in western Sweden is Nissan. The picture is taken in Smålandsstenar in Sweden with an analog camera in the beginning of the 21st century.
Pondering the theme this week on The Daily Post´s weekly Photography Challenge: Elemental I decided to share this picture of the Swedish countryside.
We are in Simrishamn and looking at a telephone booth no longer in use. It stands by the railway station as a memorial of times gone by. The picture is taken in the autumn of 2013 and published before on From My Horizon.
Still in Japan in Korankei valley by the Tomoe river in the autumn of 2013 at a famous beauty spot where there trees are very beautiful in the autumn. When the darkness comes the trees and the river is illuminated with electric lights.
