Aokigahara Jukai (in color)

Aokigahara Jukai (a.k.a. Sea of Trees of Mt.Fuji) is a popular place for suicides in Japan. but I think that's a lie. Because we can see no dead body, no skull or no ghost. Anyone commits suicide anywhere. Aokigahara is not the only place for it. for me, as you can see, Aokigahara is one of the best place for shooting nature photography in Japan. I have gone there with my esteemed photo friends (Jon Ellis, Sean Wood and Thomas Orand) this time. but I will be there again with my family for sure.

    These pictures turned out really well. And it's really interesting to see you have shot thing's very differently to me. I don't think any of my colour shots turned out and I've just started scanning in the black and white.
