My photographic notes about the four seasons in Kamakura or the gardens of Zen

Karugamo (Anas poecilorhyncha) duck: Engaku-ji
As the harbinger of autumn, a pair of Karugamo
ducks have returned to this small pond as in other years.
The female duck is dancingly gliding around on the
calm surface of the pond, leaving countless sparkling ripples on the water.
The transparent sunlight from the crystal autumn
sky will soon bring the most gorgeous colors to this quiet garden, where the trees have
hurriedly begun to take on the splendid tints of this transient and beautiful season.
