AUTUMN LEAVES IN HOKKAIDO.

It is said that the colored leaves of this year are the most beautiful in the past 10 years.

                                    We went to Hokkaido to enjoy the autumn leaves.

 今年の紅葉は10年ぶりの美しさだと言われています。美しさを求めて層雲峡に行きました。

After one hour hiking,we arrived at Momiji Falls.

We also visited Ginga Falls and Ryusei Falls too.

After taking off Tokyo Haneda airport,we can arrive at New Chitose airport 
in Sapporo in one hour.

羽田空港を離陸して1時間で札幌に着きます。

We could look at beautiful autumn leaves very much.

  2. 北海道に行ってこられたのですか。もう紅葉の美しい時期になってるのですね。学生の時、友人と二人で夏休みの終わりに2週間かけて西回りで北海道を旅しました。上の駅から夜行列車に乗って、函館連絡船に乗り変えて行きました。今考えられない位勇気がありました!層雲峡の勇ましい姿はよく覚えています。懐かしい想い出がよみがえって来ました。

    2. コメント有難うございます。今、台風18号、関東付近で勢い衰えないそうですね。お気をつけて。

      流れ撮りのシャッターススピード。10分の1に固定したまま、絞りだけ5.8~10で動かして撮りました。やり過ぎて首が痛くなりました。

      こんばんは。台風はお昼前に無事、通り過ぎました。 新幹線が不通になって困っていた人が多くいたようです。 早速のお返事ありがとうございます。 私もいつかトライしてみたいです。

      こんばんは。お褒めいただきありがとうございます。 鹿に紅葉、鹿が横を向いて、鹿十、(しかとう) 「しかと」した顔はここから来たそうですね。

  11. I love that colorful and dramatic fall landscape! The colors are beautiful, but what also impressed me (and always does when I see it) are the trees growing right out of that rock face! It's amazing how it only takes the tiniest toe hold for a seed to grow into a tree in the unlikeliest place.

    I adore the beautiful deer family, of course - I never realized there are deer in Japan! I learn new things from your blog all the time, and always enjoy the beauty you share!

    I hope you're staying safe and dry as typhoon Phanfone lashes your area...

  21. もう紅葉なんですね。奈良でも山ではもう始まっているのかもしれません。大きな岩のほんの隙間を見つけて生える木の生命力と美しい紅葉。こういう光景って日本独特のものなんでしょうか。
    鹿とモミジ。花札で遊んだのがなつかしく思い出されます。

      こんばんは。 層雲峡の柱状節理の隙間に逞しく、そして美しく生きていく植物に畏敬の念を感じました。
       御嶽山は大変の惨事になりましたが、ここではゆっくり楽しむ事が出来ました。

  22. 私もこの時期(紅葉)に北海道に行ってみたいです。羽田から1時間なんて、楽勝ですね。 観光客でにぎわっていましたか? いつも美しい写真を見ると、次の日本旅行を考えてしまいます。 帰ったばかりで、貯金にもせいをださねば、、、なんですけど、夢を見られるのはいいことだと思います。

      こんばんは。 札幌から3,4時間かかりましたが、旭川空港からは、すぐ近くです。 平日なので、観光客はそんなに多く無かったです。 北海道は魅力的な所が多く、何べん行っても飽きません。アジアからの観光客もとても増えました。
       是非、いらして下さい。
