  4. 流石、北海道の最高峰、素晴らしいです。湖水の色のなんと美しいこと!
    二つの湖が見事にカメラにおさまりましたね。

      こんばんは。今回は天気が良くとてもラッキーでした。青い池は十勝岳から流れ出るアルミニウムイオンが青い光を反射するそうです。
       火山の噴出物が美しい景色を作っています。

  8. The color of the water of the Aoi-Ike pond is stunning... Thanks for this sharing : I find the picture of the fumaroles reflection in the lake really impressive. Your macros of vegetation are awesome too. I'm always glad to discover more about Japan, which is a fabulous country.

  12. 白い煙と雪、きれいな紅葉、青い二つの池、ここに来ないと見る事のできない、雄大な大雪山の景色ですね。青い池の美しさ。光の屈折のせいでしょうか。皆既月食、私もチャレンジしました。赤い月は撮れたのですが、満月はうまく取れませんでした。でも、こんなに、月をじっくり見たのは初めてです。
    層雲峡の鹿たち。赤いモミジやシダの中にうまく収まって愛嬌がありますね。
    Have a nice day!

      こんばんは。私も初めて1時間以上、月を見ていました。二つの池を合わせて夫婦池と言うそうです。 大きいのが鏡池、小さいのがすり鉢池と呼ばれています。 青い池は十勝岳から流れてくる水にアルカリイオンが有ってそれが、青い色を反射するそうです。
       久々に素敵な紅葉を見ました。

  14. Gorgeous photos, Japan is so lovely. The reflections of the volcano fumaroles in the water are amazing. I enjoyed the white fuzzy seedpods too, the macros of the berries, and the blue water is breath-taking, especially contrasted with the fall red tree leaves and bare trees.

  18. こんにちは。先月、五色沼の青さにびっくりしたばかりでしたが、「青い池」も青いんですね。不思議な風景はあちこちにあるものですねぇ。旭岳のお写真も迫力があります。ありがとうございました。

      こんばんは。どういたしまして。黒部渓谷も青い川が流れていました。 青い池は美瑛川の水を貯めるのに造られたそうです。火山の成分が木々を枯らして神秘的な美しさになりました。

  19. 旭岳のガスはいつもこのように噴出しているのでしょうか。ちょっと怖いような気もします。
    チングルマの果実、あの白い花とはまた全然趣は違いますが、とても愛らしいですね。なんでもチングルマの名前は、その花後の風車のような形から来ているそうですね。
    青池のお写真、背景の紅葉した木々とのコントラストがとても美しいです。

      こんばんは。火山のガスと雪のコントラストが素敵でした。御嶽山の事が有っただけに怖いです。 チングルマは「稚児車」が訛ってチングルマと呼ばれているそうです。 
       青い池は最近有名になったそうです。

  24. Beautiful pictures of the grand and glorious volcano and the ponds . And beautiful too are the small and glorious flowers below the mountain. A wonderful place to visit. The rumbling volcano is a little frightening to me though!

  25. Oh my goodness! What fantastic shots of the volcano! Frosty Mt. Kurodake, with the autumn foliage in the foreground is beautiful too. I always enjoy seeing your macro shots of the lovely wildflowers you find in your travels. These seed pods and rose hips are very nice.

  28. What a fabulous landscape you visited! The Kagamiike pond is heart-shaped. I wonder if the blue pond has a lot of calcium citrate in the water? Here in the US, we sometimes have this pale blue-colored water because of a high calcium concentrate. Your photos are wonderful.

      Thank you very much for your comment. It is said that the alminium ion would reflect blue lights,so the pond color would become blue.

  29. 青池が本当に青い! とてもきれいです。 秋が濃くなっているみたいですね。 この近くは温泉でもあるのですか? 御嶽山が噴火したので、このあたりも注意がはられてるのでは? 阿蘇山とかが想い出されて、懐かしいです。

      こんばんは。 美瑛川は十勝岳の噴火した時にでた、アルミニウムイオンが、含まれているそうで、それが青い光を反射するので青く見えるそうです。
       危険度のランクが 1 なのでここにいけます。 白根山はランクが 2 なので付近の観光旅館は閑古鳥が鳴いているそうです。 3.11 以来危険度が上がった所が何箇所かあるそうです。

      Thank you very much for your comment. The risk rate of this mountain is first. If it would become the rate second, All of people must not go to this mountain side. So I am not so brave.
