Did you know that one of Cindy Crawford’s secret to get in shape is climbing the stairs everyday? Well, mine too. But, wait not really. I think photography helps a lot for me. :))
A picture is really worth a thousand words.

This shot probably would be much better if I shoot it before sun down, but I guess I can’t and don’t really have the time to wait that long. So I always go out whenever I can and don’t limit myself of sticking up with rules.

Taken the same day and place with The Colour of Spring one.
I took another version of this in RAW as well just incase. It was the only flower around that spot, the colour is SO bright, red and stand out just like in the photograph.

Thank you very much for looking and commenting!x

I forgot to bring my old Epson Photo storage and 2GB spare compact flash that day. I would’ve shoot this in RAW instead of JPEG. I didn’t have enough space left on my 4GB CP. This camera’s RAW file really take so much space. Ah well at least it’s best quality of JPEG Large.

I realize I complain a lot. lol

On my way back home from the beach. The bridge was closed and while waiting for the bridge to open again I noticed the orange yellow tourist boat from the car window.
It looks like ready to go, because I can hear the engine sound from where I stand. It was kinda hard to get the clear shot because the wind was strong, especially on this season in Japan. Tripod did help a bit but it wasn’t enough so I used the multiple shots option again.

Again, I used the Vivid setting on my camera, I’m hooked!

This is the first time I used the Vivid picture control setting on my camera.
The bright yellow flower aka tanpopo in Japanese. Taken in mid day light time around 1 PM, good thing I had the CPL mounted otherwise it’ll be over exposure.

Ready, on three!

It was another quick stop, don’t know what’s the name of the place. The wind was so strong that day, I can barely get myself stand properly so I had to hold on to something before I took the a few shots.

I couldn’t go lower angle than that, the ground is just so wet and some of the elements on the photograph are over exposed.
This is what happens when you break the rules. Ah well, you live and learn.
