Sunrise Sea of Clouds

Client: Personal

After living year round in Niseko for the last 17 years I now often have already worked out what shot I want to get before I leave my studio for landscape shots. 
Knowing the weather patterns and what to anticipate allows me to  get myself in the right place at the right time with a good chance to capture what I envision. 
At the height of summer in July sunrise is very early around 3:20. These shots were taken in the Hirafu region looking towards Mt.Yotei over a sea of clouds with some beautiful textures.
