Summer Sunshine Redux

I’m working on the next installment of the Great 2008 Autumn Roadtrip (slowly, slowly…) but I thought I’d post something while I’m waiting for my writer’s block to clear.

Being half-panda, I’m not normally a huge fan of the sweltering summer heat (we have a tendency to melt into little quivering heaps on the floor). However, every once in a while I find myself venturing out despite the heat and usually when I do I’m rewarded with some great scenery, generally of Tokyo’s fantastic blue skies and concrete.

This past week however, I thought I’d mix it up a little, and instead headed out to the countryside to hang with the lovely Bethann. We had a great time frolicking amongst the lush rice fields that are just now in their prime – I’d forgotten how beautiful they can be! (I used to live in a place that was filled with rice fields, but I wasn’t into photography back then so I never took any pictures of them – until now!)

But as you can see, I’ve tried my very best to rectify that oversight in this post so prepare yourself for more pictures of rice fields than you will have seen so far this week :P

Not much else to say, other than just sit back and enjoy the verdant greens and brooding blues of the Japanese summer in the countryside. Many more pictures after the jump below.

There’s actually a tiny frog in here. You can see him over on Bethann’s blog.

Okay, that’s it for now. Thanks for reading and I’ll be updating with the next part of the roadtrip soon!

Now listening to: “Tiesto Club Life 118 – Beyonce – Smash into you (The Flash Brothers Remix)”
I’ve really been digging Tiesto’s Club Life podcast these days. I highly recommend you check it out on iTunes!
