Step Stone Woods of Mt Mitake

I’ve been sitting on this shot since I took it last September while hiking around Mt. Mitake. I did an edit a while back on my iPad, and I liked it, but I thought I could do better, so I gave it a go in Photoshop over the last week or so. A lot of...

    Mt Mitake Rock Garden

    I think this may be my favorite photo from my recent hike around Mt. Mitake. It took me a while to get around to the best parts of the rock garden (ロックガーデン) as I spent a lot of time at Nanayo waterfall and other areas earlier on in the hike. As you might imagine, after...

      Autumn On The Rocks

      Over the course of this year, I’ve been trying to transition my photographic work more into the realm of nature. Although I do many kinds of photography, ultimately this is where I’d like to focus, along with some travel photography as well. Of course, Tokyo isn’t exactly rife with nature, and not having a car...

        Bamboo Forest of Hokokuji

        Although the bamboo forest of Arashiyama in Kyoto is likely Japan’s most famous bamboo grove (and for good reason), there are many other splendid bamboo groves around the country. The grove connected to Hokokuji Temple in Kamakura is a great example of this. Although Hokokuji itself is rather small and a bit out of the...

        • Where Earth Meets Sky » Les Taylor Photo[…] This Thanksgiving my family had the chance to enjoy a final get together with some good friends of ours who have been living on Yokosuka Naval Base. They’ve blessed us each year with a chance to come down and eat with them, to enjoy a true American Thanksgiving meal. They’ll be headed back to the US this month though, which is why it was our final time together. Anyway, since we were down there and they are about to leave, I did a small family portrait session for them in one of their favorite places – Hokokuji. After we were done taking family pictures, I hung back for a few minutes to take some photos of the lovely bamboo, so that’s where today’s photo comes from. This wasn’t my first time to Hokokuji, but every time I go I can’t help but photograph the beautiful bamboo. […]ReplyCancel

        A Lotus Flower In Ueno Park

        I stopped by Ueno Park the other night on my way home to take a few photos. I haven’t really been out to shoot in several weeks due to various issues (including Japan’s rainy season … blah!), so I wanted to get out and stretch my photo muscles a little bit. Although the flowers haven’t...
