Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Walking around Lake Sai in Japan I came upon all these boats pulled up on the shore. It was about 6 in the morning and there was still some mist on the lake. I wanted to just sit down and drink it all in, which I did for a while before coming back to reality and heading back to the fifty teenagers waiting for me at their English camp…..

    This is a beautiful image. The simplicity screams at me. Just a wonderful abstraction with great hues and tones. The rising fogover the water and the obscured mountains are a great backdrop to this well lined up boats.

  • Thanks Paul. I’m glad you like this. It’s one of my favorites so hearing somebody else appreciates this is hugely motivating. I have one other shot taken from a different angle and in an altogether different set of weather conditions which I’ll post sometime in the future.

    It is a great shot and I forgot, I love the title “fune” as well. Post the other shot, I would love to see it.

    This composition is stunning. I love the saturation difference between the boats and the background.

  • Many thanks for your comment. I spent a lot of time by this lake taking shots from various angles. This was one of the few I was happy with.
