Nobeyama plateau located at the foot in Mt. Yatsugatake in Nagano Prefecture in summer of two years ago. Cultivation of highland vegetables, such as lettuce and a cabbage, is performed using the cool climate in summer here. Altitude in here is a place with an above sea level of 1,300 m. Although there were clouds on that day, I remember that it was very hot day. In the plateau, the farmer was planting the seedling of lettuce in the hole of the pipe of long vinyl in order. Although agricultural work may have few stimuli compared with an urban life, clear air and the environment blessed with rich nature seem to have the healthy life which is hard to replace also with what.

Very impressive scenery Mikio. It is good to see that agriculture is still practiced as a family business and that it's not just the old people who are sustaining the tradition. The human body wasn't designed to sit for hours in the train, car and office. And what a view these people have! Excellent exposure. Regards. Klaudio.

Two subjects in this picture, Mikio: the green field with the farmers work on, on the beautiful green. Than there is an impressive sight of the mountaind on far side and the clouds enveloped the tops.
Fine combined scenery.

This farmer has a majestic view from his fields. Your rendering of the farm is excellent, as usual. I especially appreciate the inclusion of the truck in the frame, I like cars in photos.

A breath taking landscape with the sweeping view full of depth, in great clarity and the best colors rendition possible with nice layers of diff tones The striking farmers give us some indication of size, I feel light is a bit harsh but your pp has enhanced the image really well. Congrats.
