First of all, these trees are called "Oyako no Ki" in japanese. Which means the trees of parents and their child. I saw this moment at the time, I thought "This is an aureola of the child tree !" Because the sun was moving down to the head of the child tree and sunshine was spreading from it's head. This is an image in my head. But it was gorgeous moment. I go everywhere where I can see a great landscape. But I can not meet the scenery like this quite. That's why I want to show this image, I submit this photo.

In 2007, I was fascinated by the magnificent scenery in Hokkaido, which I visited for the first time, and started taking landscape photographs. Then I continued to shoot at world-famous scenic spots such as the Grand Circle in the United States, Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park in Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef. I have ever visited 15 countries and continue my adventure in pursuit of fascinating landscapes.
