A Japanese Autumn

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 15 October 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

This is the last rice harvest image I will post for this year -- thanks for your patience through all the others. It is one of my favorite subjects. Here we see the rice drying in the old fashioned way, and in the foreground the beautiful red higanbana flower that comes up at harvest around the rice fields.

The red higanbana spider lilies are beautiful, and thank you again for teaching me more about the growing and harvesting of rice. I truly enjoyed your images!
