Very interesting tree formation, and the branches are very different too. I love how the trunk really twists around. It reminds me of the Wizard of Oz movie.

Behind The Lens

This photo was taken in Kamakura, Japan.
After spending the whole day searching for nice shots, we ended up in a small park in Kamakura at the end of the day where the sun was going down.
The shape of that tree was pretty unusual and the light falling on it gives the impression of burning flames.
This shot was hand-held with a Sony A7R with 24-70mm
We wera about to take the train to go back to Tokyo when I saw this impressive tree in a japanese garden. It catches my eyes and I wanted to capture this moment.
Altough it looked a little bit like HDR, this picture was made with only one shot at 1/800 f/6.3 100 iso at 24mm. The main processing work was to remove tourists in the shot.
In my camera bag
Travelling as light as possible, I had only my Sony A7R with a 24-70mm f/4 lens.
Waiting for the best moment of the day is invaluable to capture some depth and texture in your photographs.
