  2. 硫黄山、ごつごつとした岩の上を歩くのは大変ですよね。池を回るコースがあって良かったです!どの池の水も澄んで美しいですが、特に六観音御池が素晴らしい。山藤も素晴らしいです!
    良い一日をお過ごしください。

      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。硫黄山から出る硫黄で秋にススキがえび色に変わるので、えびの高原と言われたそうです。
       山藤、自然のままでのびのびしていました。

  8. Minoru, These scenes look like they could be in CO! We only have Gentians blooming here in late summer or fall, when the weather is getting very cool. I love the violet photo and the ponds are so tranquil.

  12. The scenery is very beautiful and relaxing with so many exotic flowers which are new to me. I like that azalea!
    I think those are all lakes as ponds are usually smaller.

      Thank you very much for your comment. I think so ,but each lake has the original name of Ike. Ike means pond in Japanese. Ike is 池、The meanings of the lake and pond are a little bit different in each country.

  13. A wonderful region to have a walk travel and to observe these aspects of nature so lovely captured in photo instants! It must have been 2 and half hours of trip seeing gorgeous places with blue waters at the ponds. The red pines are majestic, the blooms are gorgeous...
    Many thanks for sharing them with us! A lovely weekend!

      こんばんは。私もえびの高原は初めて行きました。2日目は大雨でしたので指宿から霧島温泉に直行しました。もう一度南鹿児島へ戻るのも無粋なので、ここを散策する事にしました。この土地の植物にも会えてよかったです。
