Since I had posted urban photographs for long time, in order to remember healing from nature this time, I picked up this photograph from the photo folder in my personal computer and post in here. This photograph is taken at the foot in Mt. Yatsugatake in Nagano Prefecture in the hot early summer one year ago. I have posted the photograph of the lettuce field at the same place in the past. This time, I'll post cabbage field. Although the note may overlap, I would like you to pardon. Here is located to the center highlands of the Japanese Islands which and were surrounded by South-Alps and Mt.Yatsugatake in the circumference. It's popular as cultivation place of plateau vegetables, such as lettuce and a cabbage using the cool climate of summer for many years. I memorize that it was a day when sunlight is very strong on that day. I came to this place asking the taxi driver from Kiyosato Station. The circumference was spread out on the whole surface by lettuce field included in the white vinyl tunnel and cabbage field. I walked along the footpath of the field for about 1 hour, and took the photograph much. There was few farmer's figures in the field. The cabbage was growing, so that it could be harvested at any time. I was strangely impressive for the blue sky of summer and white floating clouds. And, Nobeyama Station which is a near station of this place is a station located in the place where altitude(1,345m) is the highest by Japan railway.

This picture reminded me of the endless Po valley in italia, Mikio, where vast green fields are all over.
Good depth towards the mountains on far, clarity and light managed beautifully to enhance the every leaf of the plantation.
Have a nice weekend,

What a soothing scene! Green as far as the eye can see. The perspective provided by the tops of the cabbages points to the mountains in the background. A superb photo, thanks!
