It has been three years since I started my work with the Shiga Highlands as the main base. Although there are still some locations I’ve yet to see, I visit other places frequently. I am at the stage where I am beginning to understand better how to get around this unique area.
This time, I took the OM-1 to the Shiga Highlands in autumn and early winter. I was able to capture the colours of this biosphere accurately. Thanks to OM SYSTEM, I also captured the feel of the cold air and expressed the changing of the seasons. I am convinced this system will be a powerful new travel companion in these mountains.
