Autumn Mt. Wakakusa Dyed With The Evening Glow

Top of Mt. Wakakusa commands the whole view of Nara Park and its city. From the late October, the leaves begin to turn their colors for autumn, and you can enjoy scenery becoming more and more beautiful. I took this picture in early November last year.
