Christmas on Izu Peninsula

Post by Araner » Mon Dec 29, 2014 5:01 pm

We spent Christmas on Izu peninsula in Shizuoka prefecture. Here are a few of the photos that I took on the trip.

Down by the waterfront in the town of Shimoda


The salt air is eating this mail box up

Traveling up the west coast of the peninsula

The village of Kumomi


A free open air hot spring bath on the water front

A view of the hotel where we’ll be spending the night in Matsuzaki village

Viewing the sunset from our room

Out for a morning stroll

A view of Mt Fuji from the fishing port of Heda

Entrance to a shrine in head

The last shot of the day before heading home. I call this “Tree on the beach in Heda”

All images were taken with a Sigma SD1 Merrill camera and a 24-70 f2.8 Sigma zoom lens.

All the best,

Nicely done. A long time ago I had an SD10, but found the colours hard to correct (in those days it was use Sigma's software or nothing). The Foveon sensor has obviously got a lot more refined since. I'm jealous of your sunshine and presumed warmth. -12C this AM and not very inspiring to go and get my fingers cold!
