Autumn leaves around Nagahama Castle.

This is a shot of the ruins of Nagahama Castle in Shiga Prefecture. I was interested in it because it was near a beach while a lot of the castles I had been were by rivers, mountains, or hills. Autumn has come and the contrast of no, green, and orange leaves are before the castle.
