Despite initially heading towards the capital, Typhoon No. 12 (Talas) changed course and instead plotted a course through the west of Japan; the huge amount of water it deposited on the region causing untold damage and numerous deaths.
A shift in direction that meant Tokyo got away with just some windy conditions and a few heavy downpours. Or certainly that’s how it seemed. But in the mountains at least, those showers must have been very heavy indeed, as yesterday, the normally meandering and placid Tama River, was amazingly turned into a swollen and fast-moving monster.
Nice B&W. Did you use an IR filter?
Cheers James. Nah, no filter. Just edited it using Silver Efex Pro.
Great picture. What is with the jack-like thing in the river?
Thanks Kevin. They are tetrapods I think. Or at least tetrapod-like things. Presumably there to do something to the flow of the river during times like these — usually even their large concrete bases along with the rocks they stand on are visible — although what that something is I really can’t tell…
beautiful black and white in the tumult of the earth
Thank you very much!
