This is my first venture into the WordPress world of Weekly Photo Challenges. Now that I have an awesome new camera, I figured I might as well join in on the fun. This week’s challenge is to “share a photo that features a light source.”
While most of the world has moved on to winter, Christmas lights and all the rest, Autumn in Japan is just winding down. A couple of days ago I had the chance to visit Kourankei, a park in Aichi, Japan, famous for its Autumn leaves. This photo was taken on the second-to-last day of Kourankei’s nighttime illumination.
Pot lights set into the ground lit the leaves up brilliantly. The ground lights had a slight yellow-orange tinge to them, which enhanced the colours a bit. Other than that this photo is unfiltered and virtually unedited.
Here are a few more of my favourites from Kourankei’s illumination:
See more of my photos of Kourankei at night, and with a different kind of light source during the daytime, in a longer blog post about the adventure here.
