November in Kyoto is the most favorable period to enjoy and try to capture the astonishing beauty of autumn. Furthermore, the japanese garden brings this beauty to the highest point: every detail tells a story of ephemeral fragility. With this point of view, the beauty of nature in its evanescence is even more romantic. The orange leaves turn in flaming red and the shades of color are amazing. There is no camera that can capture this richness of vibrant tones. Anyway I hope that with this image you could catch a glimpse of joy that I felt admiring this sight.
I shot this photo handheld with a rare Pentax smc K 30mm f/2.8 and a Kenko Zéta EX Circular Polarizer, to keep the color deepness and rendition.
