Hi there, it’s Ayako. Japan is now in autumn, a season when beautiful foliage can be seen in many places. This time, I’ve captured the brightly colored leaves at Asama Kogen in Gunma Prefecture, with my GZ-EX215!
Asama Kogen is one of the most popular places to see the fall colors; it’s a rich natural plateau spreading across the northern and southern foot of Mt. Asama on the border of Nagano and Gunma prefectures. The plateau is home to a number of waterfalls, and I visited one called Tamadare. It’s relatively small, but the water dripping between the mosses was a simple but poignantly impressive view.
I did the shooting mainly in Intelligent Auto, through which I could capture the mild autumn sun—different from summer—as well as the views of cascading waterfalls amid the foliage and the clarity of the water. Using with Tele macro, I also took a shot of maple leaves as they danced down the waterfall—even the leaf veins were clearly visible!
Enjoy the beautiful scenery of Japan in autumn!
