This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Trip to Honshu, Lake Shinji and Matsue

After we had seen enough of the swans and ducks we headed back to the west. Stopped by Lake Shinji on the way and Matsue as well to visit the castle:

In HDR this time. I don't often do that, cause I don't really like it much, but with this castle it turned out ok, in fact better than any other.

More roof detail with Grey Heron, アオサギ

Impressive. And that's what it was meant to be I suppose.

 Someones wishes written on pebbles

A good castle should have a moat.

Common Teal, コガモ

Around the lake:

Gadwall, オカヨシガモ

Great Cormorant, カワウ

Osprey, ミサゴ               Mute Swan, コブハクチョウ     

And really not much else.
