The 50mm/f1.2L is a great lens for walking around at night and shooting pictures.
Splendid views of Mt. Fuji from the Ashinoko and Hakone Skyline, near Hakone.
The Ashinoko and Hakone Skyline offers amazing views of Mt. Fuji !
Fast paced drive through Tokyo at night, from the south of Shibuya to the North of Iidabashi: narrow highways, tunnels, skyscrapers and neons – just like a video game !
Love these cold mornings in winter offering a clear view of a snow-capped Mt. Fuji from the center of Tokyo. For reference, the same spot with two different focal lengths: 100mm and 400mm.
Beautiful weather for a scenic drive on the Ashinoko and Hakone Skyline in Japan. Amazing views of Hakone and its lake, the Pacific Ocean, and of course Mt. Fuji.
With the Owakudani area closed until further notice (due to increased volcanic activity), we headed for the Hakone Shrine instead. It had been a while since I carried my 16-35mm along… I ought to use it more often, no?
BMW i8 on the streets of Tokyo !
Photography tip : if your picture is too noisy, convert it in black & white, always looks better.
Sunset shooting of Fujisan and Shinjuku.
Back on my favourite observation platform to try handheld shot in low light conditions with my 100-400mm lens – impressive results, don’t you think ? The windows are not perfectly clean so this explains the area lacking sharpness here and there.
Driving the 18,600m of the Yamate Tunnel (山手トンネル) beneath Tokyo. The Yamate Tunnel took 24 years to complete and is the World’s 2nd longest road tunnel.
400mm can even be used for landscape photography : gives an interesting perspective.
A few shots of Japanese women celebrating their Coming of Age (Seijin no Hi – 成人の日), which is held on the second Monday of the year in Japan for those who turned 20 during the previous year or will do so before March 31 this year.
Sure, this is in the countryside, but there are many of those in urban areas too ! All thanks to outdated laws maintaining high prices. Perhaps if less politicians were landowners, things would change ?
