I've been trying for a while now to get a nice panorama photo of the Aqua Line Bridge in Tokyo bay with Mount Fuji in the background. I know the perfect place to get it, but I haven't had much luck with the sunsets.
Last Thursday after work the conditions looked good for a spectacular sunset, so I headed down to the bay to try my luck. A few minutes before sunset some dark clouds rolled in though, and by the time the sky turned red there was only a thin line of the western sky showing.
Mt Fuji, which was visible a few minutes earlier, was blocked out by clouds.
A shame, because it was an interesting sunset.
I hung around for a while after the sun went down and played around with angles,
hoping that one day I will get this panorama with Mt Fuji standing tall over the water on the left hand side.
Tokyo bay is not a very pretty place.
The water is very still and the bay is always busy with boats and planes, but I still find it fascinating. At first glance there isn't much life, but when you take a bit of time to learn what to look for, you soon realise that Tokyo bay is an incredibly rich environment.
It's a great place for bird watching, especially in the Spring and Autumn.

The other side of Chiba peninsula is much more scenic though, I wish it was as close to my workplace as Tokyo Bay!
I did pop over there a few weeks ago to see the sunrise. Here's the panorama from that morning.
The sun rays stayed like this for a good half an hour,
so I even had time to take a short video.
