Waiting for the Harvest

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 7 September 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

This is the 20th time I have posted a photo of this field and the glorious old farm house at the top. I have sometimes thought of putting together a little portfolio and giving it to the owners, though I do not know them and have never met them.
The fields belong to different owners, and these past two years one of them has remained fallow. I am fearful they will sell the property and build an ugly house there, obstructing this amazing view.
To see this old house and fields in other seasons, click the link here.

What a wonderful sense of added harmony there is in viewing the 'set' you link to here. I can so understand your love of this one place and your concern for the future.

Lovely shot!
Maybe hold a small exhibition in the community hall (if there is one), or sell some prints in the local shop (if there is one)?

Fantastic pictures ! There are beautiful colours all over the year ! It's fascinating to see the evolution of the field and the surrounding landscape ! I agree with Ian about the exhibition !

Another gorgeous image of 'thehouse' and none of the twenty is the same. From snow to wet, rain and sunshine ... I do love the blue sky and puffy clouds in this one.

PS: Thank you for extra info on the rice!
