Verny Park Backup Plan

Today was a good day of shooting in Yokosuka, although it meant going with my back up plan of shooting in Verny Park.  I’m very fortunate to live in Japan and especially love shooting the western coast of the Miura Peninsula.  Why? because there are seascape shots, harbors, plus rock formations and on a clear day Mount Fuji is visible.  It’s a good thing any time you can have this snow-capped, iconic, mountain in photos.  The problem is that it’s not always visible, the solution?  Well, about two blocks from my house is a place where, between buildings and hills, is an unobstructed view of Mount Fuji.  On days when I can see Mt. Fuji, I drive to the other coast; however, when it isn’t visible it’s time to go with the backup plan and today that plan was to shoot at Verny Park right here in Yokosuka.  Verny Park is located on Yokosuka’s harbor, across from both a US Navy base and a Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force base where ships of both nations can be found.  Not to mention the park itself with people, a fountain, some interesting Japanese architecture, and a host of things to shoot.  These are all iPhone 7+ shots of today, so it was a good day!
