Song of the Sea || 海の曲

An early morning today headed out to the Maine coast to do some shooting at the Nubble Lighthouse in York. This is an iPhone shot edited with a combo of Lightroom Mobile and Enlight.

ナブル灯台の写真を撮るために朝早くメイン州のヨーク市に行ったんです。iPhoneで撮った写真です。

Motosuko Milky Way || 本栖湖と天の川

During my camping trip with my family to Lake Motosuko a couple of months back, I decided to try my hand at some astrophotography. I certainly have a lot to learn moving forward, but I really enjoyed it and will definitely be giving it a try again in the near future. In the meantime, here's a favorite of mine from the trip.

家族といっしょに本栖湖でキャンプした時に、天体写真術をやろうと思っていました。確かに分からないところはいっぱいでしたが、本当に楽しかったですし、すぐ続きたいと思います。そうしているうちに、これは本栖湖で取った写真の一つです。

*Accenting Colors || アクセントカラー *

I'm not entirely sure why there were yellow leaves along this path in the middle of May, but nevertheless they were there. Everything outside of this path was as green as it gets! This is another shot from my recent post from Fushimi Inari in Kyoto. See the link below for more.

五月なのに、伏見稲荷大社で紅葉のような葉っぱを見つけたんです。この道いがいにはすべては緑でした。変だと思ったけど、よい機会でしょうね!最近のブログで余分の写真が見える。

Blue Hour at Higashiyama Gion in Kyoto

Last week I spent several days in Kyoto shooting for a digital workshop I'm planning to release later this year. While my filming went on at one location, I obviously had to use the opportunity to explore around this amazing city. One place that wasn't far from where I stayed was the Gion District of Higashiyama. This area is famous for the Geisha who do business there, but even if you don't run across any, it's still worth the time to stroll through and take some photos. Perfect location to enjoy the atmosphere of old Japan. Incidentally, I used Lightroom's new HDR feature to edit this photo, and you can read about my impressions at today's blog post.

When We Come To It

I've been working on my photographic discipline this year, trying to plan my photos out a bit better and be more purposeful in what I shoot (or don't shoot). But sometimes you see a scene that captures your attention even though it wasn't planned. This was one of those. I took this near Ryugaeshi Falls in Nagano Prefecture, Japan. More about the shot and editing process at my recent blog post:

Sunrise Through The Pines || 松原の日の出

After a long, sleepless night of photography, this was a good way to start the day! Took this during a camping trip in April. More at my blog, so check it out!

徹夜してから、新しい日をこのように始まるのはかなり良かったと思ったんです!数ヶ月前キャンプした時にこの写真を撮りました。ブログでもう少し読めるのです。英語ですが。。。

Scenic Serendipity || 風光明媚なセレンディピティ

During my trip to Kyoto last month, I had intended to shoot Kiyomizu Temple at sunset, only to find it closed at 6, much too early to shoot what I had planned. A bit disappointed, I headed back down the long path home, watching as the sunset become more colorful by the minute. Thankfully, the path back took me right down this road by the Yasaka Pagoda just as the mixture of colors, clouds and crowds (or lack thereof) was perfect for the shot. I suppose I'll take it if I must!
I also have a new Photography Quick Tip up on my blog showing how I used split toning in creating this image, so be sure to check that out!

京都に行った時に清水寺から夕焼けの撮影をやるつもりだったけど、6時に閉まったんです。早すぎと思ったが、何もできないから残念な気持ちで帰り始めた。ありがたいに、ジャストなタイミングに帰り道が八坂神社を通りました。誰もいなかったし色と雲が合わせて、この写真を撮ることできました。清水寺から撮りたかったけど、これもいいでしょうね!

Ryugaeshi Falls

After a short retreat last week in Nagano Prefecture, I decided to take a stop on my way back home to Ryugaeshi Falls. Though seemingly not as popular as some other falls in the area, I thought it was quite lovely and worth the trip, especially considering how easy it was to access. More thoughts on the waterfall and how I processed the image at my recent blog post:

先週長野県でリトリートをやっていたから、帰った時に竜返しの滝へ行くことにしました。他の滝と比べたらあまり人気ではないみたいですが、綺麗で行く価値があると思っています。機会があれば、ぜひ行って見てください!

Alone, At Last

On the first morning of my recent trip to Kyoto, I had planned to start filming for an upcoming project, but the weather had different ideas. But, where one door closes another opens, so I headed over to the famous Fushimi Inari Shrine. Here, thousands of torii gates line paths through the woods. It's a place you can spend plenty of time exploring, though it can get crowded. Thankfully, the rain, light though it was, held the flow of visitors at bay, and let me take photos to my heart's content.

Magic of Motosuko || 本栖湖の魔法

After a long night of shooting the stars and milky way around Lake Motosuko at the base of Mt. Fuji, I was greeted with a spectacular sunrise. Yet, the glass like appearance of the lake wouldn't last for long - within about 15 minutes of taking this photo, a slight breeze was blowing along the surface of the water, leaving enough ripples to disturb the perfect reflection. Even such a small amount of time can make a huge difference in the final image! More about that at today's blog post: http://lestaylorphoto.com/mt-fuji-on-lake-motosuko/
