The day draws to a close: Gifu, Takayama, Japan

Shot back in December on our way over the mountains on Route 471, from Matsumoto towards Toyama. 

This was a little off Route 471 but not far. I'd seen an interesting plateau on the map and as everyone else in the car was asleep, I figured they wouldn't mind the detour.

The daylight was fading. It was getting progressively colder. I was pleased that we were close enough to main roads that had been cleared of the worst of the snow. I don't mind driving in the snow but in the snow and at night is something just for when I am in the vehicle... not when the whole family's with me.

About the photo?

Shot as vertical frames [about four] and stitched together in Photoshop. 

Shot and assembled to the Panavision [2.39:1] ratio. I like this ratio and am playing with some shots using it, with a view to exhibiting some work later in the year in this way.

Nikon D800E
Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 AF-S @ 24mm
Monochrome done in-camera
Few tweaks of exposure/curves in Photoshop.

  1. Thinking of calling this 'Scene from a Movie I Haven't Made Yet'. The whole atmosphere there at the time was very filmic. The whole intention with this shot was to make some cinematic….

  2. Hey Alfie! How come you don't update your 500px/Flickr? I love your work, very inspiring!
