same place

UPDATED 5.21.2014

Near my house, at the top of a…hill? There is an open area, and it’s good for taking a picture or two..

I’m in for a surprise when I get to this spot… You can see Mt. Fujii from here, but with the cloud cover, visibility of the Tanzawa range (foreground mountains to Mt.Fujii) often you can’t see it. But when you can.. man, oh man! The sunset, sunrise.. sun/light, strength… is breathtaking!

↑ This isn’t my first picture of this place, but one of the few times I’ve taken a ‘portrait’ style, as opposed to the ‘landscape’ style. I was hoping to get more of the sun’s rays coming through between the tower and the tree, but the sky above looked nice in the shot as well.

  1. Hi, thanks for stopping by my site. I like this idea, same place…love watching clouds drifting in the sky… Each day it shows us different art painting…Also, it’s nice to find photos of Japan….can’t wait my next visit in Oct! Cheers, 🙂 Mariko

  2. Great idea. and Fuji……oh my. I am just freaking envious. I’m a Southern gal to the tips of my toes but I swear, I was Japanese in another life. Thank you again. I seem to thank you a lot but I do mean it. I like looking at these pics in reverse and ending up with snow.

  3. Really nice blog!

    I also have a “same place” I go to almost daily to watch the sunrise and sunset. It’s a bridge near my home that goes across a busy expressway. Even though I have watched hundreds of sunrises and sunsets from that bridge, they look new to me every time.

  6. Nice! I’ve been thinking about doing something similar, but on the street near my home. Not an great view, but interesting to watch how the trees change with the seasons.

  8. Gee, too bad – a view of Mt. Fuji every day, whenever you want! I like the snow scene as well as the darker “noisy” images. Ditto others above, just find a close, local scene and shoot it throughout the year – good plan. Appreciate the nods on my “Yertle the Turtle…”, “The Panther”, “Charlotte Cityscape” and “Blue Moon” (I needed that one at the end of the day – ha!). Take care!
