The Hokata Mountain is one of the many astonishing scenery of Japan that deserves to be admired just once in our lifetime. I spent an amazing day going hiking from the beautiful Taisho pond to the Kappa bridge, enjoying the spectacular views of the Chubu-Sangaku National Park. The nature there shows itself in all its magnificence: at the highest altitude, the thick and luxuriant forest leave space to the rocky peaks, which are sculpted by the winter’s ice. The air is thin and fresh and the fragrance of the trees and the river makes the enjoyment of this paradise an unforgettable experience.
This is a blending of three shots with 2EV of difference one from another. To keep the color intensity of the sky and the forest, I used the Kenko Zéta EX Circular Polarizer on my old loyal Pentax smc K 24mm f/2.8
