Japan Osaka Minoh waterfall full spectrum pink sakura landscape

This photo was captured by a full spectrum camera, in Minoo Osaka, Japan. I took this photo on a trip last year summer. It was the first time I went Minoh, a forested valley on the outskirts of Osaka, just north of the urban sprawl. Minoo Park is the closest spot to the busy metropolis of Osaka to find a spacious natural recreation area. The name Minoo Waterfall comes from the fall's resemblance to winnowing, a traditional farming technique to separate grains from husks (the Japanese word for "winnow basket" is "mino"). The name was later applied to the area in general.
