Red Autumn Foliage Nikko

From Futarasan Jinja we traveled deeper into the forests, and as the meandering drive took us closer to the summit of the mountains the color of the landscape started to turn from green to yellow, and then finally red.

The display and volume of colors wasn’t nearly as spectacular as the ones I saw on Mount Fuji some years back, but that’s only because it was still about a month before the reds actually peaks.

What an awesome color palette! Sketchbook and watercolors or just good ol fashion chill and be at peace. Great references, because of fantastic photography indeed.
