Autumn flower at local temple

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Autumn has come and now we have autumn flowers. I don't know the English name of this flower. We call this flower as Higanbana - Autumn Equinox flower. That blooms around autumn equinox day.
Red one is common but I especially like white one that has purity and elegance.

I went to take photos to local temple. I used soft lens to capture this beauty.

50mm soft lens is unique but good for candid photo. A great contrast of sunshine and shadow.

When I was walking around the garden, I hear subtle beautiful sound like harp. Subtle but clear.
In the below picture, you can see stone packed tube at the front side of the picture.
We call it as water-harp. Yes, this is a musical instrument.

Under the tube, small pot was buried. small water current was poured into the pot and it resonate under the ground.
This is a gracious gift from ancestors.
