Last October I've spent a month traveling through Japan capturing the shift between summer and Autumn across the country.
This photo was taken near the city of Kobe while hiking down from the famous Kobe Nunobiki Herb Gardens. Most travelers miss this little gem by taking the ropeway (which does offer stunning views of the city) but I've decided to take the footpath down from the mountain and was rewarded with some beautiful sights.
The location itself seems quite popular with the locals and I had to compete for a spot with a few other Japanese photographers which in itself offered some unique interaction opportunities.
From a technical perspective I've done my best to keep the editing to the bare minimum and the only real modification is the removal of a small power line that ran at the bottom of the waterfall.
