This was taken back in December on the Nishigawa river in Okayama city; part of the city's "Okayama Fantasy" seasonal decorations.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

A riot of colours! No wonder that the New Year was harbouring autumn tints as well, temperatures are milder down there!An impressionistic touch which I find most pleasant and attractive!
