Looking Forward to Autumn in Kyoto
Japanese Garden in Fall Colors

Having looked back to cherry-blossom time in a recent post, this time I'll look forward to the upcoming fall by revisiting some photos I took last fall.

The picture above is the backyard of someone's house, visible from a trail leading up Daimonji Mountain (see this post for more on Daimonji). The following picture shows the front gate of the same house:

The path is on a slope leading up the mountain, which is why the wall shrinks to nothing on the far right. It's from there that the first picture looking into the backyard was taken.

If you step into the stone entryway shown in the middle of the second shot, and turn right, you're greeted with the view shown in an earlier post, reproduced in thumbnail at right to pique your interest. Follow the link (or click on the picture) to visit that post.

These are all just someone's house in an out-of-the-way area of north-east Kyoto, near Kinkakuji Temple, that I ran into while hiking Daimonji Mountain. I hope I'll be able to recreate the hike again this year. Nils, do you think you'll be up for it again come November? I'm thinking to bring Anthony this year...

I love the picture of the “Simple Japanese Garden. The colours are wonderful and the composition is excellent. I must say that I’m starting to really like the small and subtle frame idea for displaying pictures on the web. Would you be interested in writing an entry on how you frame your pictures for the web?

Oh, yeah, definitely. Why don’t we go for Hiei-zan, too? (On another day, I mean.)

I am really looking forward for new pics. My background picture is used since 1 year and get’s boring a bit though it is of course still a great picture.
