    お城も常念岳もきれいですね。特に真っ青な空と横にたなびく雲が素敵です。(^_^)v

  3. Minoru-san, Your photographs on this post is just breathtaking. My memory of Matsumoto-jo is raining and gloomy. I don't remember seeing the mountains at all. Have a nice day !!!

  21. こんにちは。松本城が立派です。特に1枚目の写真の角度から見ると、世界遺産に指定されてもいいくらいの素晴らしさです。私は松本駅から出発するミニ観光バスに乗ったので、お城を遠くからグルッと見ましたが、間近には行ってません。今思うとお城の中まで見に行くべきでしたね。松本城と常念岳の2ショットもとても綺麗です。北アルプスもすっかり雪景色ですね。

       こんばんは。良く晴れた日でしたので、ラッキーでした。北アルプスが見えたので感動しました。土曜日だったので、天守閣の中は渋滞していてゆっくり見る事が出来ませんでした。
