Tiny Beauties  I found these growing along the road leading to a temple. The little Olympus 60mm( 120 equiv)  macro did a fine job I think. I used to carry much  heavier macro lenses and then rarely use them but at 230 gms this lens is no trouble.

Intense ColourSpent part of today walking along a trail beside these intensely coloured lakes in Fukushima Japan.Heres what wikipedia says “Goshiki-numa (五色沼?), is a cluster of five volcanic lakes situated at the foot of Mount Bandai in the center of the lake district of Bandai-kōgen, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan.Goshiki-numa formed when Mount Bandai erupted on July 15, 1888, destroying dozens of villages and killing approximately 500 people while creating hundreds of lakes and tarns.[1]The eruption completely rearranged the landscape, creating the Bandai-kōgen plateau and damming local rivers. The eruption imparted mineral deposits to the Five Colored Lakes giving each of them their own delicate color, ranging from reddish green to cobalt blue. The colors of each lake mysteriously fluctuate throughout the year with the weather. Since the eruption, Goshiki-numa has become a popular tourist destination. An approximately four-kilometer walking path from Lake Bishamon, the largest of the five lakes, to Lake Hibara affords people a view of all five lakes.” #fukushima     #japan     #landscapephotography     #RvK

Maples - Kyoto This time of year has new shoots on the maples that are so delicate and vibrant. I stayed quite a while yesterday, watching these two branches dancing together in the breeze and ‘making shapes’ as dancers do. Great to be slowed down sufficiently to be entranced by simple beauty.www.robertvankoesveld.com  ©Robert van Koesveld Photography http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/  #RvK   #kyoto   #moods   #photography   #dancingleaves
