Four from the Fall
5

I finally had an opportunity to get out to the countryside, and opted for the forests of Chichibu which is a mountainous area north of Tokyo.  I chanced upon a magnificent waterfall that was upstream about a kilometer from where we arrived.  This truly was the first real photo opportunity since well before the pandemic so I tried to make the most of it by taking a few dozen snaps.

Re: Four from the Fall

I like both the photos and the 1980s/1990s movie titles you assigned to each. It must have been enjoyable to actually be there.

Very nice set. I like them all, but my favourite is the last one. Beautiful picture.

Out of curiosity, are these falls natural? I see a kind of wall, built with stones, particularly in the 2nd one.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Four from the Fall

Thanks for posting such refreshing images. It looks like a very soothing location. Good work with minimal one camera one lens kit.

You can see a lot just by looking.

Re: Four from the Fall

Looks like a nice escape from Tokyo's heat. Did you go for a dip?

You must be a film aficionado, too.  Happy you quickly picked up on the not-so-hidden allusions.  Thanks for visiting!

Thank you!  Glad you liked the set.  You ask a very interesting question and I wish I could provide you with an unambiguous answer but I can't.  I assume though that this was a natural fall with stone added later to make it more attractive among other reasons.

Ritch, thanks for dropping by and commenting.  Much appreciated.  It was soothing to the soul and my aching bones.  Frigid waters usually does the trick on days when the mercury is around 100F.

Indeed it was a great escape from the lifeless atmosphere of cement, glass, and steel characteristic of hypermodernity.  Inadvertently, I almost went for "a dip"--a plunge, really.  LOL   The current in some sections of the stream/river was fairly strong and the rocks added some risk due to the slipperiness of rubbing sandal against moss.

“A River Runs Through It” was one of my favourite movies of the 1990s. A beautiful, quiet masterpiece from director Robert Redford. Your photo would have fit in with the scenes from that film.

I am a fan of most Redford-directed films, but that one didn't cut the cake!
The three others are certainly among my own collection of DVDs.
One of the Jurrasic movies has a similar weir!

Yeah, it was a good film with its beautiful depictions of life and fishing in Montana.  Wouldn't mind seeing it again.
