A Perfect Day In Southern Japan

We finally had a break in the weather. It’s been stormy and windy because of the typhoon, but yesterday it cleared up for a perfect day.

I’m not exactly sure where these rice terraces are on a map, but they were pretty amazing. They extend all the way down into the bay and to the right, out of frame were these giant windmills just over the hill. It was such a perfect view. And not a soul was there.

Shot With – Fujifilm X-T1

I’ve been really really liking the Fujifilm X-T1 as my landscape camera. It’s so intuitive and everything you need is on a dial. Designwise it’s perfect. I love it. Now if it could just have that Sony A7r sensor in it, my world would explode with rainbows and roses. And I guess a lot of unicorns . . . lots and lots of unicorns.

Lens I used here was the Fujinon 10-24mm f4. It’s actually not a bad lens at all. Fun to use, not crazy sharp, but no real bad flaws either. 

I’ve been working on a review for both of these things but as I nearly finish my X-T1 review, Fujifilm updates it making it better. I swear, this camera is like a fine wine. I can’t wait to see what it will do next year.

A perfect day in Southern Japan.
