Off the Beaten Path, Japan #23: Sunset in Sakae

Sunset in Sakae

In the countryside east of Tokyo lies the quiet town of Prosperity (Sakae). Take a short walk away from the buildings that make up the town proper to find miles of farmland stretching out as far as the eye can see. And, if you wait until sundown, you might see something like this.

Off the Beaten Path, Japan #22: Sunset on Kanna Lake

Sunset on Kanna Lake

A picture from my trip to Kanna Lake in February. Nothing like a little sunset to counteract the dull winter colors. It’s a shame I hadn’t bought an ND filter yet!

Off the Beaten Path, Japan #21: Neighborhood Garden

Brilliantly orange flowers in a garden in Kinshicho

While wandering my local neighborhood of Tokyo, Kinshicho, I found these orange flowers growing in a garden outside an elementary school near my apartment. It looked so good I had to take a shot, and this is what I got. It looks so perfect you’d think it was photoshopped, but actually I only added some relatively heavy vignetting to cut down on peripheral distractions. What do you think?

The ferris wheel in Kasai Rinkai Park

Another photo from my visit to Kasai Rinkai Park several weeks ago with model Gwyneira Li. Though she wasn’t the shot, she was right beside me as I took it. Just moments before, I took this gorgeous shot with her in the frame. Be sure to check it out too!

Fairyland Sunset in Japan’s Southern Alps

A photo that I overlooked from my first attempt at a mountain photoshoot with my dSLR. Despite not really knowing what I was doing at the time, even an novice can’t fail in a place like this.
