Sunset over Tokyo

Tokyo from Mori Tower_2941

Note Mount Fuji rising above the Kanto horizon

Tokyo from Mori Tower_3027

These were taken from the roof of the 53-storey Mori Tower, Roppongi Hills.

The skydeck reminded me of a ship. Big sky, and a huge sea of buildings. Admittedly you don't tend to get many buildings in the sea, but nonetheless...

You can just see Mount Fuji poking up above the horizon in this one.

These are stunning, Joseph. You have quite a talent and it's developing more and more all the time.

You might want to put low res. screen background size versions up for people to download, but put the URL for your site and any other sites you'd like to promote on them. It'd allow you to use your skill to promote your services.

The black and white one is particularly amazing.

Utterly gorgeous! I also particularly like the black and white one - it looks like a still from a film, like it has a lot of story behind it. Thanks for sharing them, hope you didn't freeze!

Thank you both, I really appreciate the feedback!

I did freeze. I was outside for something like 90 minutes, without my warm jacket! By the end I could barely change lenses on my camera - teeth chattering away! But it was worth it!

loved the shot of you at Zeteil---ah, such memories!
Stay warm and well. Suggest you both carry giant inflateable beach balls with you at all times. That way you cannot fall down any cracks during earthquakes and will be able to to float happily in any nearby lakes.
