Fred is a an awesome guy, and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know him. We hung out together in Northern California a while ago and got along like a Starbucks on fire. Take some time and visit his blog… he’s got all kinds of good stuff on there. Also, he recently interviewed me for an upcoming This Week in Photography, which I will link to as soon as it goes live!

Daily Photo – The Rainy Forest in Hakone

Hakone is a wonderful and remote part of Japan. The bullet train only took me so far before I switched to a smaller series of trains to get me out to this spot. It is nationally known as a place for rest and spiritual relaxation. I was already on vacation, so I decided to double down and take a vacation from the vacation and super-relax. I spent the day out exploring places like this before retiring in the evening with the most intense hotbaths of my life.

  • Trey, with New Year’s Eve closing up with fireworks and all that, how would you recommend taking HDR pictures of fireworks? One single, long exposure, or several long exposures in bracketing?

    I recently ran into your site…I had no idea such a fantastical world of photography even existed. Nevertheless, I have begun my very own HDR endeavors after seeing your work. Thanks for the inspiration!

    On a note pertaining to the photograph; Japan is an extremely wondrous place and your photograph does a superb job exhibiting that beauty. It reminds me very much of the Pagoda forests in China (another amazing place). Thanks for sharing!

  • Japan is a wonderful place – I never made it to Hakone during my time there though 🙁 The forest looks home to all sorts of ghost sand spirits, very eerie feel to it!!
