Day #1713 Title: A Flash Of Autumn Colour
Location: Kenroku-en Gardens, Kanazawa, Japan
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Today we moved on to Kanazawa on the northern coast of Japan. The famous Kenroku-en Gardens, one of Japan’s top three,  are just one of the attractions of this lovely old town. I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours wandering around amongst the cool greenery, finding quiet spots and inspirational views around every corner. This is the famous two-legged Kotojitoro Lantern, symbol of Kanazawa. I thought it would make a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #66 – Balance. Read more about my day.
