Time to leave Nikko, time to say farewell to a beautiful spot in Japan.
I never thought that I would still be in Nikko after submitting thirty photos, but I loved the place for its Lake Chuzenji, its waterfalls, its shrines, temples, its charming streets and fine traditional shops, its artistic soul, its friendly people and its Autumnal grace and beauty.
So as night slowly envelops the town and the lights beckon both the local and the traveler to come to a hot bath, a hearty meal and a few cups of fortifying sake, I say with a little sadness- farewell lovely Nikko.

This really is an atmospheroc and beautiful place. The cloudy sky here is a nice detail and adds a lot to the atmosphere - as the warm lights of the lamps do. A wonderful place ... and a worth-seeing photo!
Greetings from cold Germany! And it snows and snows and ...

Your sayonara photo has a nice gentle softness in the light and mellow colour tones. The lights are coming on in the town and the sole boat barely disturbs the still waters. It's the best hour of the day. Very atmospheric, suggesting the melancholy pleasures of nostalgia.

Atmospheric and beautiful. I said before that I love all your photographs. Atmosphere, life ... and well-made!

This a wonderful 'sayonara' photograph after your uploading such wonderful and well done pictures of NIkko. Romantic, fairy, placid, excellent contrast.
Thanks for sharing your emotions with us.

It sounds like a wonderful place to visit. The light is very subdued here and creates the mood. Having the little boat completes the triangle for the eye to move around and mirrors the triangles of the mountains.

Ciao Caro, how are you? What a beautiful, moody and ethereal photo you have brought to us. I like how your photos always create a mood, they're not just pretty images. The clouds and misty atmosphere really looks great, not to mention the reflections on the water. I like the framing too. Thanks for sharing and I wish you a beautiful weekend, Lisa

A beautiful sight and a lovely atmosphere, which you have captured very well. Soft natural colours, nice composition and good control of light. An inviting view!
Greetings from cold Espoo,

You saved one of the best for the last. What spectacular scenery, especially with that shimmering reflection of the lamp post. All the salient elements have cooperated here to produce a special parting shot.

Great work - quite Japan-looking it is!
Very mystic-looking with this haze gathering.
Lonely boat plays well also.

Hi Klaudio, Beautiful lake scene of this part of Japan. The capture of the curvature of the edge of the water and the balance between earth and water works well. TFS. Murray.
PS I may be in Japan soon, so interesting.

Well composed, excellent color tone and a fine photograph with settled atmosphere!
Low mountains are described by perspective well.
And, a running boat draws out a good effect for the whole as well as foggy image, the reflection of light and delicate different tones of water surface.
