I spent the last three days in Niigata prefecture with the camera in my hand. It was the first time for me in that part of Japan, and I wasn`t disappointed at all. The place that struck me most af all for its beauty is the birch tree forest of Bijinbayashi.
I could have spent a whole day there taking pictures without getting bored.
The quiet of the early morning with the sun warming little by little the green leaves is a breathtaking experience in this magic place.
