Tokyo Snow

Snow coming down heavy on the crossing

It was snowing in Tokyo today. I was out this morning and took these shots of Shibuya. The snow kept falling until evening when it became a bit more like rain, but it has not settled yet. Maybe over night we might have more. Tomorrow morning might be a snow blanket !

I took these photos as HDR images, 5 shots of varying light (-2 -1 0 +1 +2) range and then combined them together. Even on a dark day there is enough colored signage for Shibuya to look wonderful and bright.

A bit too wet for football today

A little bit of a dark image across the train lines andbuildings

A few umbrellas speed across the crossing

Down on street level with the umbrellas

Always busy in Shibuya

  1. Absolutely amazing shots, the first few don’t even look real. Where is the point you took the first shots from, I didn’t know where to go to take an aerial picture when I visited Shibuya in January! :(

  2. I really love the last picture in this post.
    Do you have a higher resolution of this? I so want to make this my Desktop Wallpaper

    • Thanks. It is a set of 5 photos taken at differing light for the HDR. Shutter speed would have changed for each one. I try to keep the ISO at 200 when I take HDR, but dont worry about that on normal shots. The day was a bit overcast, but still managed ok without a tripod.

      I am visiting Australia later this month and will take some photos there also for a change.

      Thanks for commenting :)
