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?
Slightly crowded for the first day of the new year 2016 !
First night out for my Christmas present !
Evening stroll in the Golden Gai area in Shinjuku.
In Iidabashi, for ~10 days every year, a lovely boat ride awaits !
The magic prime in action !
Tokyo Tower and the Mori Tower of Roppongi Hills at night.
Playing with the focus ring, 1cm away from the water.
A few long exposure shots from Hokkaido, trying to frame the Milky Way and Mt Yotei together.
Light pollution sometimes produces nice effects – look at these colors !
Tokyo Daijingu during the rainy season here in Japan. Lovely reflections on the stone floor! I got wet, my camera got wet, but I think it was worth it, what do you think?
Any season in Japan is a photogenic opportunity :)
Soon 8 years in Tokyo but my first night out in Kabukicho, with a Swedish friend !
Great evening at the Robot Restaurant in Tokyo. This is one of the last shot I took. Still quite many to sort but I thought I would give you a small preview :) And yes, an elaborate composition to avoid the need for a model release !
As promised the other day, now a long exposure shot of Tokyo Skytree at night.
