Mt Fuji On Lake Motosuko

I mentioned in my previous post how, during a recent camping trip, I had spent the night shooting astrophotography shots along Lake Motosu at the base of Mt. Fuji. While I spent the whole night there, my night of shooting didn’t actually end until after sunrise. The colors of sunrise begin quite early during the...

Morning Waves In Choshi Japan

This is another image from my trip to Choshi in Chiba Prefecture last month, and while I like the photo well enough, I’m not totally happy with the composition. As I said in a previous post, I arrived to the coast later than I had intended. This meant I wasn’t ready to start shooting until...

    Crossing Paths In Tokyo

    This photo is one I took at the Tokyo World Trade Center early this year. I really enjoy light trails in city photography, but I think sometimes it gets overused, when there are other forms of showing movement that are really great. In this case, I kept my shutter open for just half a second...

      • leslieThe D610 was basically an update to fix the oil problem, and I haven’t noticed anything myself yet. Definitely loving it! As for the upgrade, the D7000 has been a fantastic camera for me, and I’m sure you’ll love the D7100 if you decided to upgrade. 🙂ReplyCancel

      Movement of Shiraito Falls

      Today’s photo comes from the lovely Shiraito Falls in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. I posted several photos from this waterfall several months ago, but I had a lot of work to do on this one before it would be ready for sharing. The main reason it took so much processing is that I didn’t expose for...
