Fire Pool

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Bryan Baier

My quest for a sea of autumn fire led me to this very small shrine in the foothills of the mountains to the south and east of Niigata City. A wall of color in a stand of cedar trees led me to this pond. Japanese maples dominate the shore of the pond, their fierce yellow and red coloring is stunning to behold.

Location: Horide Shrine in Kanazu Village, Niigata City, Japan
