Ryokan room


A nice ryokan (hotel with spa) room in AizuWakamatsu, prefecture of Fukushima, a onsen (hot spring) resort on the snow covered mountains, very nice place. Nearby there is Inawashiro, a mountain resort famous to snowborder around the world, for staging the Japanese event of the snowboard world cup. We spent a couple of days there wit all the family, enjoing good food and taking hot bath many times, even in the middle of the night baths are open! I shoot this picture with my 17-35 mm Nikon at 17mm, the camera was the Nikon D2Dx, it was a DX format camera, so the effect of this great lens was a bit lowered. I did not corrected the slight distortion for this blog photo and used ambient light mixing natural light on the shoji (panels covered with rice paper in fron of the windows) and keeping the warm color of the lightbulbs.
