Landscape pictures from Japan added to gallery

The gallery “Japan” with the first pictures of the natural beauty of Japan has been added to the “Landscape” section. Enjoy 😉

 

New stuff from Japan

Lately I’ve been processing more shots from my past travels to Japan. This not only includes the beautiful landscapes of North Japan but also includes some modern architecture from Tokyo. I also managed to continue two recent series, the “Observer” and “Zebra” theme got an addition each.

Here are the first 3, enjoy 😉

 

More Impressions from Japan

It’s already three months ago, when I came back from Japan. Until now I only showed only a few abstract architecture shots, but I don’t want to miss to show some other pictures which represent Japan, unlike the other pictures.

Here is one from Mount Fuji and Tokyo.

The skyline shot is overlooking 杉並区 (Suginami), the west part of Tokyo, it was taken from the Tokyo Metropolitan Goverment building. On the left side in the front you see the Park Hyatt Tokyo Hotel which became famous after the movie Lost in Translation. On the right side in the background you can see Fujiyama, the highest mountain in Japan, overlooking the mountain ridge in front of it.

The other one shows a dusk mood at Mount Fuji  (富士山). The shot was taken at Kawaguchiko.

Back from Japan

Wow, long time no post again… Apologies for being so inactive (and lazy) in the meantime :/

Just in case you wondered where I’ve been lately: I’ve been to Japan for two weeks and of course I brought some new material from there. I’ve been to Tokyo, Nikkou and Fujiyoshida / Lake Kawaguchi. The main photographic subject for this trip was modern architecture, rather than nature / landscapes, so I spend a good amount of time in Tokyo, where I also met with Luca Cesari. I guess my main subject in photography slightly changed, it was nature /landscapes in the early days and became modern architecture and travel photography these days. If you ask yourself why I mentioned travel photography without having much of it in my portfolio, you’re right. Although I have plenty of material, I’m very picky about selecting pictures for publication, because it’s somewhat a new field and really difficult for me to judge whether an image is suitable / good enough for publication.
Btw.: I still owe you pictures from Thailand, right?
I really would need holidays to catch up editing all the images I want to publish. I guess, I will reduce the editing effort to be able to publish more frequently. What do you think?

Anyways, it’s already a lot of text, when I started to write this post I didn’t intend to write much… Let the pictures speak! I’ll start publishing new pictures soon, stay tuned 😉

Spring flower macro shots and announcement of next trip

Hey ho

I was out shooting some spring impressions in the last weeks. When I went out shooting the last times I wasn’t in the mood for and didn’t find nice subjects for wide-angle photography so I put on my 50-200 f/2.8-3.5 SWD on the fourthirds adapter and looked around for details, spring details.Eventually I was doing macro photography, which I haven’t done for quite a while, so I was enjoying it.
How can’t you resist taking close-ups of spring flowers in full bloom anyway? 😉

Currently I’m doing the last preparations for my upcoming trip to Japan. The trip includes Tokyo, Nikkou and Fujisan. If anybody has some recommendations regarding food to try and places to see in these areas, I’d be happy to know.
