Shimoda Sunset

Newer Older

Went down to Shimoda again for another weekend filled with surfing and fishing.

Weather was perfect but waves were a bit small (though perfect for the kids). The day was topped off with a *spectacular* sunset after we exited from the local Onsen (pictured to the left of the river here).

Non-HDR shot taken with my new Lumix DMC-LX5. Could've gone for HDR on this, as the camera can shoot RAW and auto-bracket, but thought I'd keep the foreground dark and highlight how beautiful the sky was.

Shimoda, Japan.

    The colors here are so beautiful and vibrant! You totally don't need HDR, nature has totally amazed me on her own here. Oh, and Panasonic too. :) Love how the river looks like liquid fire.

    Beautiful colours you managed to get in the sky there - we`ve actually had a couple too - just need to not be working when we get them next.
