This 144-Year-Old Wisteria In Japan Looks Like A Pink Sky

These stunning photographs, which look like a glorious late evening sky with dashes of pink and purple, are actually pictures of Japan’s largest wisteria (or wistaria, depending on whom you ask) plant.

This plant, located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan, is certainly not the largest in the world, but it still comes in at an impressive 1,990 square meters (or half an acre) and dates back to around 1870 (the largest, at about 4,000 square meters, is the wisteria vine in Sierra Madre, California). Although wisterias can look like trees, they’re actually vines. Because its vines have the potential to get very heavy, this plant’s entire structure is held up on steel supports, allowing visitors to walk below its canopy and bask in the pink and purple light cast by its beautiful hanging blossoms.

Fields of Blue Flowers in Japan

In the Hitashi Seaside Park in Japan, infinite fields of nemophilas roll out like carpets of flowers on 190 hectares. We have gathered the best photos of this insolite place which appeals the tourists. Photographers must retouch their photos to erase the presence of people in the fields.

Newest Land On Earth (by mm767cap)

I have a love/hate relationship with the images I take with a telephoto lens. I love to hate them. I suppose practice makes perfect, and with a subject like this one, just having the memories from the day makes this image special to me. Taken while enjoying time with great friends Bruce Omori and Tom Kuali’i of Extreme Exposure, and Ryan Dyar.

I wished I had the Nikon 200-400mm lens for this one, as even at 200mm it was a smidge too far away. With the D800e’s incredible sensor, however, cropping doesn’t pose too much of a problem.
