This photograph is taken from the platform of Shin-Yūbari Station which is the transfer station which goes to Yūbari Station from south Chitose Station (Sekishō Line). This station is a station which consists of the main line to which there connects between Shintoku Station in Kamikawa-gun and Chitose Minami Station in Chitose-shi, and a branch line between Shin-Yūbari Station and Yūbari Station in Yūbari-shi. I rode on the limited express for Obihiro from south Chitose Station, and got off at this station for transfer. I had to wait for one hour and a half in order to have ridden on the branch line for Yubari Station. However that may be, the trees of the mountain which is behind of a station were dyed beautiful autumnal tints. So, the autumn season of Hokkaido is early about one month compared with the mainland. Simply, that is the reason because latitude is high. I was fascinated by the surrounding scene for a while from on the platform in which nobody is present. After a while, the local train came into the opposite lane, and several passengers were taken down, and it ran away in the tunnel direction under a mountain calmly. After I took several photographs at this plathome, I came out of the wicket, took a walk the circumference of this station for about one hour, returned to the station, and jumped in the train for Yūbari. The surrounding was time when it was beginning grow dark.

That must have been a very beautiful train ride through that autumn landscape.
The trees rise nicely up behind each other on that steep hill and provide in this way a wonderful colour palette.
Best regards, Paul

The green, yellow and grey trees climbing up the hillside create a beautiful background to this view, but it is the tracks, the poles and the signs that really catch my attention. They tell me of technology and human activities in a modern society. I also like how the rust on the lamp-posts and the green design on the train are nicely matched by the colours of nature.'Kind regards,

I like the rusty lamp posts and other technological artifacts in the front versus the beautiful nature in the background.

The train in white and light-green colors mingle in harmony with the autumn colors over the slop on far background, Mikio.
The platform with its signs added scale of depth along the tracks.
Nicely spotted, fine clear view on.
Enjoy your weekend,

You've certainly have captured some wonderful autumnal colour here and brilliant comp with nice leads into the image perfectly and the light work so beautifully together. Indeed, the evidence of autumn adorning the green foliage cannot be ignored with the loco as an extra interest. A very pleasing image that is beautiful i guess no matter the time of year. Well done. Congrats

Not a bad spot to be waiting for a train, with your view of the attractive autumnal colors encompassing the entire hillside, then the train station with dominating number signs to bring us back into modern society.
I prefer Nature over modern, especially having worked most of my life for California Transportation.
