Near Shizuhara (静原)

One of the great things about living in the Iwakura section of Kyoto is that I'm never far from a great deal of natural beauty. I found this scene after deciding to take a road I'd never been on. After walking about 40 minutes I found this breathtaking sight -- an emerald valley of rice fields rolling into the distant hills. The next few days are all taken from that same hike.

Thanks for all your visits and comments while I was away. I'm slowly making my way back through your work, and that is fun.
