Kusaki Dam

Posted by Mike Cash (Kiryu, Japan) on 28 July 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Kusaki Dam on the Watarase River in rural Gunma Prefecture. Photo taken from an isolated logging road running through the mountains. I almost didn't get a shot because the top branch of a tree on the slope below was protruding into the scene. I solved the problem by taking a heavy rope from my car and tossing it across the branch. It took several tries but I finally got it across. The weight of the rope held the branch down out of the way while I took the photo.
