It's been a long time between my photo uploads recently, there are many reasons for it, for this one it was that I finally got to travel back to Japan.
This was my first trip there since November 2013, and a special one at that.

I shot this photo outside Kurama near Kyoto. The girl in the photo here used to be my girlfriend, but after this trip she is officially my fiance!
She has a different approach to photography than I, but it brings me to more places and hopefully more photos... eventually :P

I really wanna go back :)
Hopefully I'll be driving around with my wife at that time and hopefully to find more places that are less touched by the regular holiday photographers ;)

Aw that's awesome! Congratulations! It's a beautiful looking area too, all those trees and that tiny road, it makes me want to to go out walking.

This little town we were outside here is a must to go walking in.
Not quite the season this time, but I know there is a path for hiking over the mountain that I really want to try this summer when we have our honeymoon ;)
The nature in these mountains is just fantastic.
