I was in Japan recently and the hotel that we stay in is out in the country near to the Narita International airport. The airport, which is the main international airport for Tokyo, is about an hours drive from the middle of town and is in a farming area with many small forested areas.
I went for a walk on what was a sunny day after a period of gloomy weather. Much like Christchurch is now!
What caught my eye was the abundance of new life in all the forest undergrowth. There were many new shoots and leaves which stood out in the patches of sunlight that shone through the trees.
Making this series of images added the my enjoyment of that walk in the country.
