AUTUMN LEAVES IN NIIGATA.

            We ( My wife and I ) went to Lake Oku-Tadami to see beautiful autumn leaves.

                                     奥只見湖に行って来ました。

Oku-Tadami. 奥只見。地下に水力発電所が有ります。



We got on a sightseeing boat from Ginzandaira.

I took this photo from the ship.

Mt.Komagatake. 駒ケ岳です。

It was very cold and rainy day, but my wife was  busy to take photos.



 This is a B & W photo. 白黒にしてみました。

After getting off the boat, we took lunch at Oyu-Onsen area.
There were small Falls at Sanashi river.

大湯温泉で昼食をとりました。

Next day, we went to Mt.Hakkaisan. It was a rainy day too.


 A road to Shrine. 八海山遥拝所への道です。


Autumn leaves were a little bit beautiful.


We enjoyed 2 day trip very much.

  3. 木曽駒は、知ってますが、日本には、ほかにも駒ヶ岳がいくつかあるのですね。新潟のは、初めて見ます。白い幹が見えますが、白樺でしょうか、落葉松でしょうか、全山すっかり秋の色ですね。雨の日もミステリアスで、シャッターチャンスですね。
    Have a nice Autumn!

      こんばんは。秋田にも、箱根にも駒ケ岳という山はあります。 土地の人に敬意を表して、越後駒ケ岳とは、書きません。 白い木は多分、ブナの木が落葉したものと思われます。綺麗な写真を撮るんは、日の光が必要とつくづく、感じました。

  4. こんばんは。ちょうどさっき9時前のNHKニュースで奥只見湖の紅葉をやっていました。上空から森や湖や遊覧船を撮影して、それはきれいでした。いい時期に素敵な場所にご夫婦でご旅行できてうらやましいです。

  6. 奥只見湖は地下に水力発電所が有るだけあって奥深い山の中にあるのですね。雄大な自然と人間の知恵が融合した世界って凄いと思います。遊覧船から撮った紅葉も見事です。白黒の写真は、いつも憧れの的です。紅葉と滝のコラボは楽しい秋の景色で楽しいですね。
    Have a good day.

      こんばんは。いつもテレビで紅葉の放映があるので、いつか行きたいと思っていました。京都や奈良に比べると単調ですが、それなりに楽しんで来ました。

  14. 新潟も美しい所がたくさんあるのですね。奥只見の山の側面が削り取られたような傾斜ですね。気候が厳しい分、秋がより美しいのでしょうね。八海山遥拝所に登る道が神秘的な雰囲気です。

      こんばんは。 八海山も紅葉がとても見事だそうですが、天気には勝てませんでした。 船の外で写真を撮って、すっかり冷えてしまいました。船の売店で、八海山の熱燗を飲んで、温まりました。

  15. The colors and scenery are beautiful, Minoru, even in the misty rain! And I love how the mist makes the path to the shrine look - so serene.

    So do we get to see any of your wife's photography here? :-)

  20. It is nice to hear that you both enjoyed the 2 days vacation with so many beautiful photos captured. Thank you so much for sharing with us all the pretty sights of red, yellow and brown leaves. Autumn is always beautiful when the days get cooler and makes everyone happy.
    I miss the Autumn days in America. I must visit Japan next Autumn and you can show me around!

  21. Thank you for the cyber tour of Minoru! You are so blessed to have such a beautiful autumn...like fireworks...one tree standing next to another claiming to be so much prettier than the other one. Fall is my favorite time of year. Japan is on my bucket list but I am in my 70s now and so not sure that I will get there. What a beautiful place to live and work!

  22. 素晴らしいお写真の数々! 錦の綴れ織りですね。私も長野と新潟の県境あたりを旅行して帰ったばかりですが、ここまで紅葉は進んでいなかったように思います。滝がシルクのドレープのようで綺麗。駒ヶ岳は木曽にも甲斐にもありますね。旅行は地理のお勉強でもあります。長野・岐阜は焼岳、新潟は焼山ということも今回の旅行で学びました。みのる様のように博学ではなく浅学なので。

  31. 最近寒くなってきましたね。この写真でも秋が深まっているのが感じられます。 あいにく雨でししたが、大変良く撮れている写真だと思います。 得に白黒の写真は日の射している風が、荘厳さがあって、素晴らしいです。 寒い時の温泉は最高でしょうね。 うらやましくなります。
