A good day for me!

This photo has been doing really well over on 500px these past few days. Earlier tonight, it was on the top page, sitting in 10th place with a score of 99.6 (since then it’s dropped, and is now lost somewhere in the milkyway of trending photos!).

500px is the hottest website for image sharing these days, all the world’s top contemporary photographers show off their masterpieces there. The photos are voted for by viewers, so the images that make it into the top 500 are the kind of images that feature in magazines and newspapers. So 10th out of hundreds of thousands of images from all over the world is a big occasion for me! What makes me even happier is that a Chiba landscape could be so popular. I struggle to find good locations for landscape photography here in Chiba, and often look jealously at the stunning overseas locations featured on the site.

So, what does it mean it terms of sales, fame, and my day-job etc?

Nothing! It just gives me bragging rights for a day :)

Thanks for listening!

And I hope you like the photo.

I've actually been interviewing some local people about this cave, trying to find out some of the history and geology of it to write an article. I have a few other articles to do before that, but sometime in the future you can read all about it. This cave is man made, and its story is fascinating. It's history and location now completely forgotten, hence the title I chose for it.
