Sunset Chiba Prefecture Japan

Sunset at Suzumejima

Last week I had the chance to visit┬áSuzumejima in the Boso Peninsula of Chiba Prefecture. It’s a place that I’ve been wanting to photography for some time. The location itself isn’t anything all that fancy – it’s comprised of two rocky structures sticking out from the water near the coast. Despite the location’s simplicity, it is a beautiful spot to photograph the sunset, especially this time of year. For a brief period each year, the...
Mt Fuji on Lake Saiko

Lightroom Only || Mt Fuji On Lake Saiko

This is an image I took last summer during a trip to the Mt. Fuji Five Lakes area. Before this trip, I had been to three of the lakes: Kawaguchiko, Shojiko, and Motosuko, but had not yet been to Yamankako or Saiko. Out of the remaining two, Saiko was easily my favorite. Although the view of Mt. Fuji is partially obstructed at Saiko, the natural beauty and serenity of the lake made up for it....

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

Mt Fuji Reflected In Rice Paddies

Just before I left the Mt Fuji area during my recent trip, I met up with Yuga Kurita to take some sunset photos. He has lived in the area for some time, and is an incredibly talented photographer with most of his photography being focused on Mt Fuji itself. I had not planned anything all that special, but he recommended we photograph Fuji along some local rice paddies, and I’m so glad he did! These...
Koganezaki Japan sunset

Cloudy Koganezaki Sunset – Lightroom Only

I’ve been wanting to do another Lightroom Only post for a while, and this photo gave me the perfect opportunity to do just that. This image comes from Koganezaki – a lovely cape on the Western coast of Japan’s Izu Peninsula. Considering how lovely it is, I was all the more disappointed that the weather was not nicer. As you can see, it was totally cloudy, with only a short window of diffused light coming...
