More Biei Countryside

More pretty views from Biei, Hokkaido, Japan from our trip a month ago. Unlike those posted before, these are from our first day there, when it was much more hazy, overcast, and gloomy. Still, a few nice shots came out, I think, with common themes throughout.

Oyako no Ki
親子の木
Literally: Parents-and-child Trees

The trees in the last shot (which is better viewed with the larger version — as with most photos I post, click on the image to view) are somewhat famous, even being marked and labeled on area maps. There were at least a dozen people along the road taking pictures of these trees when we came by. How silly, taking pictures of trees. I'm glad I have enough self respect to not lower myself like that. 🙂

Anyway, hmmm, I wonder whether it would make a nice desktop background....?


One comment so far...

I love how the fields look like chocolate. Yes I am hungry right now.

The lighting looks like it was hard to work with. One of those days that keeps the contrast down.

I have been reading your blog for the last month and your photos helped me make up my mind on buying the 17mm-55mm 2.8 lens. I also have to complement you on how much updated content you have on your blog.

Fellow ex-pat and photophile,

Landon
