This photograph is taken in the Ōtsuki suburbs in Yamanashi Prefecture in September four years ago. This is an area along the Fujikyuko Line running 26.6 km from Ōtsuki to Kawaguchiko at the nearest station in Mt. Fuji. I got off at Tanokura station, in order to take the photograph of the crop season of rice. I walked about 10 minutes from the station, and arrived at pastoral field. It was a day with fresh/sunny autumnal weather on that day. The ear of rice was dyed golden color and had greeted the rich crop. When I neighborhood-came together and having been seen, the red dragonfly is flying to the surroundings of an ear of rice, and it had attached coloring for the season of autumn. In fields, rice reaping is finished in some places, and the ear which fruited is hung on the pole for the increasement of nourishment by the sunlight. Around, the farmer's figure was seldom seen. This is the basin surrounded by the low mountains in the circumference. Occasionally, the local train passed the foot of the mountain slowly. The illustration of Mt. Fuji was prettily drawn on the body of a train.

Transportation & agriculture mingle to one scene, mikio, as a good presentation of daily life in Japan.
Contrast is immaculate betyween the green and white, also the farmer stands on right taking a short break while the train paasing.
Fine moment collected, I like the pattern painted on the cars.

I like the look of the farmer, taking a short break from his hard work in the fields to watch the train going by. The green and yellow tones of the field are beautiful and contrast sharply with the greyness of the modern areas across the tracks. The train is nicely painted. The funny figures look like they were taken from a comic strip for children.

First of all many thanks to your comments to my older power plant photo. In your comment you used word white smoke, it is a smoke but the white color is steam contained in the chimney flue gases. I took that photo during clear, but cold winter day. As the power plant flue gas contains also water, the white color is created by stem from flue gas, condensing back to water in cold air. This process is accompanied by white color.
I've also taken one of your older, but excellent photo. I like the composition with the train crossing the frame and the man behind the fence watching the passing by train. All in superb light & clarity. Wish you a nice week. Greetings Miro.
