I don't even know if it's legal to post photos of lushes, green gorges that haven't been taken in the PNW...

I shot this a few years ago in Northern Japan. Out of Lake Towada flows the Oirase River, which is one of the most beautiful and underrated places I've ever been.

I visited the gorge many times, but felt like I never truly captured how beautiful it was. I've always wanted to go back, which seems to be the them with everything I've ever photographed.
