さようなら、金沢!

When in Kanazawa, I was asked if I knew the "three gardens of Japan". Not being a complete numpty, I surmised that one of them would be here in Kanazawa.  I was right. The garden is Kenrokuen (兼六園). The spacious grounds used to be the outer garden of Kanazawa Castle, which i also went and had a look at.

Being a Sunday, it was rather busy (something I am still adjusting to here in the UK, where everything is shut on Sunday), so I had to be patient to get these shots. Not as patient as I was waiting for this heron to take off, mind you...

This was taken with the same 60mm macro lens I was using to shoot the eagle on the previous post. Again, not the ideal lens, but a damn good lens and one I plan on reviewing in good time. 

After walking the grounds of the castle, I headed back to my hotel to prepare for the conference which started first thing in the morning. I got another peak at the museum, as it was on the way.

The conference was very enjoyable, and worthwhile for our company and its presence in Asia, and I was a little sad when it was all over, and I was to head back West. Meals with distributors, agents, and potential clients made for a very busy week indeed. Thanks to all! 皆様、いろいろありがとうございました!

For my next post, I have something a little different, which I hope you'll enjoy. So as usual, stay tuned!
