Conquering the Wilderness
Hike on Mt. Daimonji, Kyoto Japan

I mentioned the other day in my post about some drama on Mt. Daimonji that I'd hiked with Anthony. Here are some shots from the first part of the hike.

Unlike the last time we did this three years ago, when I had to carry him most of the way, this time he could handle himself, so I was free to bring my new big lens, and decided to give my little-used monopod a try as well.

One comment so far...

Wow, Anthony must have been born to be a warrior. Looks like he has intuitively grasped the concept of a Daisho setup.
