Philosopher's Tree

I had the chance to go to Hokkaido last weekend, hoping to catch some sunrise and sunset shots, but unfortunately the weather chose to be very uncooperative.  (well, weather and smog).  Still, got a few shots that were interesting, including a couple of long exposures.

As you can see from this album, I rarely shoot LE, so I'm still working out the best way to get rid of the color casting caused by the filter, which tends to make everything a very deep blue.  Still need to experiment and practice a bit more obviously..

Despite the bad weather, I still had a good time – thanks to +Jason Arney , +Agustin Rafael Reyes , +Aaron Tang , +Nithin Selva , and +Kanna Nishimura for the pleasure of their company!

    Definitely not anita!  It's just a long exposure, taken at around 4AM in the morning, hence the cloud streams and coloring 🙂
