The great white heron.
The Himeji jo, known as “The White Heron” or “Shirasagi jo”, is the biggest castle of Japan. After the restoration works that took several years and ended on March 27th 2015, the walls of the structure were dazzling white and its reflection on the moat was more visible than in the past.
Shot with the Lee Filters Big Stopper to obtain a long exposure and the Lee Filters ND SoftGrad 0.6 to darken the sky.
