  1. It’s kind of funny, that water is draped over the edge so casually that it looks lazy. I want to tell the water “hurry up and move somewhere.” 🙂

    • Thank you very much for your nice comment. Your sensitiveness is wonderful. I see…it looks just like a casual clothes which has the pattern of fallen leaves. The present time, this spectacle takes off for somewhere…

  2. These are amazing images.Timeless. Leaves suspended in light. Just lovely!

  3. Great photos of the freezing water!

    Excellent! Admire the many beautiful places you visit in Japan and how you capture their essence with your photos. 🙂

    • Oh…your comment delighted me. Thank you very much, kuujinbo. When I feel a strong attraction to scenery, I observe it for a long stretch of time. And I shoot a part of scenery I especially like.

  6. the black is bright! good.

  7. Suspended water and seasons. Beautiful! Water is endlessly intriguing, isn’t it? Full of possibilities.

    • Thank you very much for your nice words, Karen. Yes, the scenery which water makes is interesting and attractive. And I really love the world of water which you shoot. They are very intellectual, poetic and elegant.

  8. Such elegance!!! Woaw!!!!😱😱😱😍😍😍

    Wow – these are really amazing images!

  10. Beautiful, unique images. Love the first one which looks like a vortex – or like the water is being wrung and twisted.

    • Thank you very much for your nice comment. I agree with you completely…I’d like to observe the morphosis of this modeling. For example…fast-forward movie by fixed point observation.

  11. wow … those first two shots almost look like abstract paintings! great work!

    • Thank you very much for your nice words, Stephen. This small cave behind the waterfall is so cold and wrong for taking photos due to the spray of water…However there were many attractive materials.

  12. So pretty, the ice almost looks like fabric over the rocks.

  15. Simply breathtaking – a frozen moment of time

    • Thank you so much, Louise! I’d be very glad to be able to encounter such a wonderful spot again in various scales…a frozen moment of time, a sparkling moment of time and so on.
