This year, the rainy season (Tsuyu) is bringing lots of rain, unlike last year which was unseasonably dry and felt more like summer with high humidity and many 30 plus days.
The upside to last year's Tsuyu was the blue skies, which were great for photography.
June rice fields
I spent most of my June weekends last year making the most of that weather.
One of the things I focused on was making June Vertoramas.
Vertoramas are just like panoramas, but vertical.
These involve taking 4-5 photos up and down, and stitching them together on a computer.
Blue skies, with fluffy white clouds make beautiful vertoramas.
I'm hoping that one day I will have a enough vertoramas to hold a gallery exhibition.
Imagine a whole wall of 2 metre high photos of the Japanese countryside over different seasons.
It's hard to imagine the what they would look like through a computer, but here's a close up of a vertorama that gives more of an idea of the scale and detail.
Anyway, that dream is a few years away yet,
I still have a few more photos to add to my collection.
I'm getting there though.
