It rained the day before and with any luck it will clear up the next morning. It was in this environment that I chose this location for my photo shoot. And as expected, I was able to capture this moment. Although well known among Japanese photographers, I have never seen such a fog with light piercing through it and shadows riding it. It would be impossible to photograph such a situation happening during the brief cherry blossom season! It looks like we could not see this spectacle again in 2023!

I am a landscape and wildlife photographer with a wide range of genres in Japan. I usually work as a construction worker and enjoy using my camera. I work for various companies and NFT in a wide range of fields. I started participating in international photo contests outside of Japan in 2022!
