Before Sunrise -- Homage to Akarui

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 5 September 2008 in Animal & Insect.

Back to Japan after a few shots from vacation in upstate New York.
I post this photo in homage to one of my favorite bloggers: Olivier I am continually inspired by his skill and his sense of beauty. And because he is a master of blue, I dedicate this to him.

NIKON D300 1/80 second F/5.3 ISO 1000 157 mm (35mm equiv.)

A master of blue... Well I can only say you mastered the blue here very well! I will have a look at his site...
