Inba Marsh

Inbanuma (Inba Marsh) is about an hour by train from where I live, deep into the Chiba heartland. It's not really much to look at, but it does have a footpath right the way around it, a windmill at one corner, and a reputation for very atmospheric sunsets (sunrises too). Footpath... check; windmill... check; atmospheric sunset... well, I tried my best, but it was just the wrong day for it really. I got a pinky glow after the death and some interesting shadows... and of course the chance to scope out likely spots for my next visit... whenever that may be... I'm think cold, misty, winter's day.

Park on a stormy day

The typhoons have come through thick and fast this year, in fact I see there's yet another on its way for next week. Lovely.

But you do get used to it, and you do get used to just getting on with it. I'm not saying you stand out in the field in your vest or head down to the beach for a bit of surfing when the eye is overhead, but short of being really stupid, you just go about your business as you would normally... 

A walk in the park for example, is still a walk in the park, even when it is a little grey, wet, windy walk in the park. Different light is still light, and one of the joys of this hobby, is that you really can do it anywhere at any time.
