In this third article of the “Autumn in Japan” series, I’ll show you some glimpses of the beautiful island of Miyajima, Hiroshima prefecture; to be precise I’ll focus on the colors of the Momijidani park.
I’m thrilled to announce to all my friends and readers that I’ve been awarded with as many as four honorable mentions in the 2015 edition of the ND Awards – Neutral Density Photography Awards.
This year I’ve submitted various kind of photographs, choosing as main themes the natural sceneries and the ancient architecture captured in Italy and in Japan. I’m glad that these works have been selected by the ND Awards’ judging panel, and I hope that you too will find them aesthetically and emotionally compelling.
If you travel in Italy by car, you have to keep in mind one important thing: avoid the motorways/tollways. Just by taking a country road, Sara and I found ourselves in the fairytale forest of Mount Amiata.
Italy is a country so much rich of natural and artistic hidden gems that rushing through a motorway to reach the destination will preclude you from discovering the majority of them. So, during our outward journey to southern Tuscany, we took the slower and longer route that led us through Mount Amiata, in which I’ve found the perfect conditions for taking some nice shots.
