Miyama in Autumn

20121130-193623.jpg

Miyama is made up of many small villages and is part of Nantan City, Kyoto Prefecture. Miyama is famous for its thatched roof houses, old forests and beautiful scenery. Currently it is in the midst of Autumn, with the mountains glowing with red, yellow and orange whilst down in the valleys the trees are painted splashes of colour amongst the rice paddy fields.

Already though, there is more grey amongst duller red on the mountains and villagers talk of the cold and slushy rain that arrives before the snow. Impermanence in everything.
