Travelogue: Great Smoky Mountains National Park In Autumn

Last week I took a camping trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to photograph the fall foliage. The colors were late this year, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t spectacular! I had a fantastic time exploring the region with my camera. Speaking of which, this was my first significant photo outing with the new Nikon Z7. I’ll be posting a review of the Z7 in the near future, but suffice it to say,...

Sunset from Mount Iyogatake

Earlier this year in May, I took a trip to the Boso Peninsula of Chiba Prefecture. Although I live in Chiba, the area where I live is much different from most of the prefecture.

However, as you head east from Matsudo,...
