The autumn colors have been super late arriving this year in and around where I live. I has very happy to have found that the Japanese Maple trees around are finally displaying their explosive colors. These five-pointed leaves are alive rich hues that bound from the deep wine burgundies to multicolored mix and matched colors of yellows and reds. The hues awaken my senses and I am always amazed at how vibrant these colors can be.
I found these all at a little temple complex on top of a small hill in Ichikawa, Chiba, Japan. There were all amazing hues that teased my Ricoh GR IV out of my pocket and into my hand. I searched out those hues that pulled me like a magnet towards them. I wasn’t the only one wandering around this small complex looking at the autumn leaves. There were several groups of mainly older Japanese looking at the trees.
Just another reason to be thankful. I am thankful to the Creator for splashing my cold gray day with the explosions of color from the Mimoji trees.
