Yokoyama Feeling : Autumn / Winter

As autumn winds down into winter, the air grows clear and cool. The horizon is crisper and the silhouette of Cape Goza grows sharper at the edge of Ago Bay.

Late-blooming trees and shrubs like the sasanqua camellias add color. Oaks drop their acorns, and squirrels come to feast.

The foliage thins as the deciduous trees shed their leaves. Japanese white-eyes, long-tailed tits, and pygmy woodpeckers gather in bands to pick through the barer branches for food.

Winter is cold but seldom brings snow. The forest slows its pace and settles in to wait for spring.
