Waterfall in Chichibu, Saitama, Japan

I recently spent a day touring around part of the Chichibu area of Saitama.

There are some great waterfalls there.

This was just downstream of the main falls at Marugami.

  1. I lived in saitama long time ago, in fact i am on my way to minami urawa as we speak

  2. Are they running the steam locomotive up there again this summer?

  3. Not sure, David. Didnt get around to noticing that.

  4. Nice capture but there was something i didn’t agree with in the photo. The waterfall seems too odd not looking like a real water but as if too edited, or kind of blur. It was a great capture though.

      This has had no Photoshop. Was a 1min 40sec exposure, shot in black and white in-camera. That’s just the natural blurring of the water from the long exposure.
