立山の紅葉に異変が.....

      Unusual Autumnal Leaves

                                 in Mt. Tateyama (Part Ⅰ)

Tateyama had already gone by the middle of October this year due to its height. As you can see from the picture taken around Mt.

However, when you look at the picture closely, do you really feel beautiful? Something seems to be wrong with the colors of the leaves. Did it happen to occur this year? No!
