Maple leaves in Engaku-ji temple

The zen gardens of Kita-kamakura begin to be flooded with autumnal colors.

The subtle gradation in color, which can only be seen in the initial stage of this season, is especially picturesque and reminds me of the beautiful "Bokashi" (gradation) representation of Ukiyo-e.

This splendid celebration of colors will reach a climax at the beginning of December here.
