THE HARVEST SEASON.

                  We went to a trip at Azumino and Kamikochi in central Nagano.

                   安曇野と上高地に行きました。

Buckwheat flowers are in full bloom in the fields.

  2. Buckwheat flowers... now I know "flori de hrișcă" how they really looks!!. Never seen before such blooms to have such lovely aspects! And I'm so impressed by the mountain sights, these beautiful landscapes, especially the one in Hodaka... I love each one captured by your camera lens and the mix of colors of the waters in Yakedake and, also, in Taishoike.. Akebonoso is gorgeous as all the wild flowers shown in previous post at Hakuba... oh, what details, indeed! Have a great and positive week!

  4. Hi Minoru!
    Thanks for showing the buckwheat field and flowers. In our family we eat buckwheat pasta from Italy but I've never before seen the plant. The rivers and mountains are very beautiful,as are your photos.
    Interesting bird!

    Enjoy your week,
    Ruby

  5. Especially since we love buckwheat soba noodles, rice, apples, and a bit of Japanese horseradish on our homemade vegan sushi rolls, I really enjoyed seeing these crops! :-) The field of buckwheat is especially lovely with its delicate little flowers and mountain backdrop, and the rice crop looks abundant!

    The mountain scenery is so gorgeous, I can almost feel the fresh, cool air! Especially beside the pond and along the Azusagawa River. Love those shots of beautiful Yakedake and the Hodaka mountains with the clouds hiding their peaks. I think those wildflowers were about to enjoy a little afternoon drink! :-)

    My favorite flower is the Akebonoso. So unusual! It almost doesn't look real!

    A lovely job, as always, Minoru! Visiting your posts always makes me feel like I've taken a wonderful little vacation! :-)

  14. 蕎麦の花畑、きれいですね。初雪のように見えました。もうすぐ、蕎麦の実の収穫で、新そばがたべられるのでしょうね。信州蕎麦、おいしいですね。上高地、夏と秋の間でしょうか。秋のカラマツには、少し早いようですね。いつも素敵なところです。かわいいカラスもいるのですね。
    Have a nice day!

  21. Great shots of the grain fields, Minoru. Looks like it was a good harvest. The scenery in that area is beautiful. The photo of the river with Mt. Yakedake in the background takes my breath away. As usual, you've included some lovely wildflowers. The petals of the Akebonoso are really pretty.

  27. 蕎麦の花、アップで見るとほんとに愛らしいですね。ところでワサビ農園に行った時、アオハダトンボを見ました。準絶滅危惧種だという事を後で知りました。ハスの葉にもとまっているのを見ました。種の保存、再生に努力されているんでしょうね。ホシガラスというカラスの仲間もいるんですね。初めて知りました。

  29. きれいだなあ。 水の様子が清々しい! 白馬で私たちもそばの花を見ました。 駅まで送ってくれたペンションの持ち主に教えてもらいました。なんだろうってずっと考えていたのです。 わさび農園は旅のリストに入っていましたが、時間切れで、通過しました。 この;ポストで写真を拝見出来て良かったです。 上高地は次に行ってみたいところです。

  31. 心にある原風景なのかしら? 
    昨年秋 熊本で初めて目にしたはずなのに、
    白い素朴な蕎麦の花が咲く風景に心癒されます。

    山や川もお好きなのですね。 とても上手に撮られて
    素晴らしいです! 動きの速い野鳥の表情も楽しくてナイス。

    お出かけが楽しい季節になりましたね! ヽ(*^^*)ノ
