Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens | Tokyo, Japan

Visited Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens today. My first visit is well over a year. I had forgotten how much there is to see here and ended up spending over two hours wandering the grounds. The noise from all the attractions around Tokyo Dome, right next door, was a little distracting but for a park in central Tokyo this is definitely worth a visit. The autumn colors are still a few weeks away but there was still plenty to see.

 

This is a HDR image made from 5 frames shot handheld with my 80-200 f/2.8 zoom @ f/2.8. Besides the bright reddish orange bridge popping out of the green foliage, I particularly liked the spots of light falling on the rocks.
