Spring is always a great time to enjoy the great outdoors. For Today’s Japan Photo, we will be hiking to Lake Nozori 野反湖.
This great looking photo of Lake Nozori was taken by * Yumi *. It is a HDR image, which means it is the same shot taken with three or more different exposures to capture more detail. I like how the deep blue lake forms a contrast against the greenry.
Anyway heres a little more information on Lake Nozori:
Lake Nozori-ko, in the north of Kuni-mura Village, located in the northwestern part of Gumma, is an alpine lake, 1,545 meters above sea level. It is a man-made lake with 12 kilometers in circumference, created in the middle of the 20th century accompanied by the construction of a dam for a power station, and now is a source of the Nakatsu-gawa River. About 300 kinds of alpine plants are known to be growing around the lake. There are campsites, bungalows, and lodges around the lake, which can accommodate as many as 3,000 people. The place is also known to anglers as a good fishing spot of trout and carp.
