Korean summer weather is either muggy hot or soaking wet! Bring on the rain!
As we wandered around the Tohoku region of northern Japan, we came across Tendai-ji Temple. Tendai-ji is the oldest temple in the Tohoku region.
Roaming around the Tohoku region of northern Japan is great medicine for cabin fever! We actually became a little lost and ended up on a road or two that were impassable due to a good amount of snow. We chose a different route and came upon this barn by itself in what seemed to be the middle of nowhere. As Robert Frost opined, “I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference”.
One of my favorite shots of The Golden Kinkaku-ji Temple in Kyoto, Japan. I took this during our summer travels in 2019. I love how Kinkaku-ji dominates your attention, even though it is blurred in the background.
A Scottish Loch
I stand mesmerized by a Scottish loch in Cairngorms National Park. Another favorite memory from our trip to Scotland. Hard to believe that it is closing in on two years since that fantastic trip…Melissa and I can’t wait to return!
Torii and Rice
I truly love exploring the Tohoku Region of Northern Japan! This tori gate sits majestically in a rice field near Towada, Japan in Aomori Prefecture.
Scottish Stone Bridge
As I sat looking through photos on a snowy day here in Misawa, I came across photos from our trip to Scotland in 2019. This photo of a stone bridge near Cairngorms National Park is one of my favorites. We were just wandering around and once we were over the bridge Melissa looked back and said, “We have to stop and take picture. It is simply beautiful.” And she was right!
One of my favorite shots capturing Itsukushima Shrine tori gate from Miyajima Island in southern Japan. I took this photo during the summer of 2019. I miss traveling and moving about freely with little concern.
